Tuesday, March 5 - Huge thanks to Acappology for hosting us last night! They were all super friendly and accommodating despite having classes and exams today. The next stop was the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. Upon arrival, we had a few hours to kill before meeting up with Tar Heel Voices, our hosts for the night. Some took to the library to relax, and the other big ballers again hit the gym. We had to find current UNC students to sponsor us for accesss to the gym, so we akwardly stood at the gym entrance until 3 MVPs delayed their workout to sign us into the gym. In return, the six of us offered to sing a song for them but luckily, they were in a rush and it probably would have gone poorly anyway.
Before meeting up with Tar Heel Voices, we ran a quick rehearsal/photo shoot on the top deck of a parking structure downtown. We refreshed our ICCA choreography for semifinals next weekend and realized that there is still much work to be done and we can’t wait to grind it out next week!
We then met up with THV for dinner then joined them for a joint rehearsal and song-sharing session. We’ve been blown away by the talent of the groups we’ve met so far on tour, and THV was no different. Their soloists and blend were amazing. They were a joy to be with and we learned a couple of their warm ups as well. UNC is a beautiful campus and everytime we come back, it has always been fun and warmer than Ann Arbor. Thanks UNC!
