UOG Singers have weekend concert

by Jolene Toves

Guam - The University of Guam Singers are gearing up to put on a show that will have the audience clapping to their beat. Choir president Andrew Gumataotao said, "We are doing some scripts from the movie if you remember like the certain scenes its mapped out almost as if you are watching the Pitch Perfect movie."

"We are taking those characters from the movie and a lot of their humor in our lines and our scripts so you will definitely see that."

The choir's director, Randall Johnson, says the concert will not be completely a capella as the University's Jazz Band will also perform.  "They are on at the beginning they will be singing the solos will be from sing off with that group but it will be accompanied with them," he explained.

Six songs will be performed from Pitch Perfect and six from the television show Sing Off will be sung a capella accompanied by choreography.  The concert will take place tomorrow and Saturday at 8pm at the University of Guam Fine Arts Theater in Mangilao.  

"What we are raising money for now is we are going back to Alamots Czech Republic, when we were there four years ago we took second place in our division in A Capella Pop Jazz Gospel Division," Johnson said.

The competition will take place in June and this year Johnson says his group is better prepared for the competition with more experience and knowledge of what it takes to perform in front of an audience adding that they hope to go back and take first place.

If you would like to attend tickets are $7 general admission and $5 for students while children 12 and under are free.
