    Vocal Accent is Rochester Institute of Technology's newest all-female a cappella group. We are a dedicated and motivated group of 12 young women who have a shared passion: a cappella.


    With funding, we hope to establish ourselves in the world of a cappella by using what we raise to do a few very important things. Firstly, we hope to release our first full studio album by Spring 2018. However, recording is an expensive process, and we need funding to make this possible. Recording is an exciting learning experience, and we have already recorded three songs that we plan to release as singles in the spring.



  

  Secondly, we hope to enter into the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, the best and most competitive a cappella competition in the world. Here, we would be able to compete against other schools and groups, giving us the chance to show everyone what we are capable of and to learn from the best and brightest in our field. Being a newer group, we have only entered this competition once before, back in 2013. If we are able to go, it would be an opportunity to advance our current selves as a group and as individuals. The chance of a lifetime, the ICCAs are a wonderful opportunity that we would like to make a reality.



  

Use of Funds Breakdown

  • Recording and producing our first ever full length album
  • ICCA (International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella) travel and entry costs
  • BOSS (Boston Sings A Cappella Festival) travel and entry fee costs
  • Travel costs for guest group performances at other colleges
  • Spring Concert setup (lighting, sound, space rental)
  • Hosting costs for other guest a cappella groups at our events
  • Vocal Accent merchandise and shirts for our members




  In addition to these two major goals, the money we make from fundraising will go towards keeping the group running, putting on our spring concert, and towards traveling together to perform at other a cappella concerts and events. Any funds beyond our desired goal will go into savings for future generations of talented heeled ladies to continue to grow as singers and people. With your help, we can make all of this possible!
