We’ve been so busy the past few months that we forgot to update our website to tell everyone about it!
We held auditions at the beginning of winter quarter and we were delighted by the number of talented people we had audition for us. Though the choices were tough, we chose to take four new members. We are pleased to welcome to Tessa, Brandon, Cameron, and Erin!
Extreme Measures also competed in the ICCA quarterfinal at the University of Chicago on February 22nd. In spite of fierce competition from a number of incredibly talented groups, we are delighted to say EM won the quarterfinal. We’re also so proud of our measures who won individual awards: Meghan Kerwin for Best Soloist and Peter Stein for Best Arrangement. Winning the competition in Chicago allowed us to advance to Quarterfinals, which were held on March 30th in St. Louis, Missouri. We were so excited to be able to travel together and honored to be counted among such talented groups.
Along with ICCAs, Extreme Measures also organized our star wars themed spring show: May the Fourth Be With You. Held on May 4th in the Mccormick Tribune Center, the show was a huge success. The one night only event consisted of two performances at which we performed a variety of songs including our quarterfinal-winning ICCAs set. The packed shows were a great way to send off our many graduating seniors: Austin, Seana, Mike, Andy, Kevin, Meghan, and Sophie we will miss you all!
We have also been in the midst of recording more material for our sophomore album: Heating Up. We are so excited about recording, and should be finished some time next year. Check back to this website and our Facebook page for more information. We can’t wait to share the album with you, but while you wait please check out our first album, Extremities, available on iTunes and Spotify.
Finally, we are sad to say goodbye to our seniors, but we are also so excited for auditioning new members this fall. Currently we are preparing fresh material for new student week and A Capella Fest, which is fall of this year. Please check back to this site and to Facebook for more information come fall. Until then, stay Extreme!
