Falls Capella: Bringing a capella to the Falls

On Feb. 3, 2018, the second annual Falls Cappella concert was held at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at the high school. Falls Cappella is an a cappella concert that invites choirs from other schools to show off their hard work and music programs. This year our very own a cappella group called the M&Ms started off the show with three songs they have been rehearsing throughout this school year.

The songs that the M&M’s sang in their set included “Zombie Jamboree,” “Autumn Leaves” and “White Winter Hymnal.” The hard work and passion that the students portrayed on the stage was breathtaking. The way the singers all worked together and had fun on the stage shows how close the group is to one another. The M&Ms are currently preparing for one of their next shows at Nordonia High School. They plan to change up their set in order to show off all of what they have to offer.

As the hosts of Falls Cappella, the M&Ms were joined by many other schools. These schools included Nordonia, Cleveland Heights and North Royalton high schools as well as special guests form the University of Akron. Nordonia brought two groups with them, Momentum and Synergy. Cleveland Heights brought along two groups as well, called Gold Rush and Friction. Lastly, the University of Akron brought along their all-women’s a cappella group called Kanga Blue.

Each of the schools performed three songs featuring choreography throughout the performance. Kanga Blue added one more song to their set at the end of the night and invited the audience and the performers to come see them perform at their upcoming show at the university.

It was nice to be able to see all of the groups showing off their talents. Each and every school was talented in their own ways. I am excited to see what surprises the M&Ms have in store for their next show at Nordonia. Based on what was shown at the Falls Cappella performance, I would expect nothing less than perfection from this group at any of their future performances.
