Hey everyone! For all of you who went to this past weekend’s Open House, I hope it was a great experience for you and I hope we sold you on coming to COM. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to meet all of you, because I wasn’t in Boston this past weekend.
As I mentioned in my bio, I am part of The Boston University BosTones, one of twelve a cappella groups on campus. We’re a premier co-ed group at BU, and we perform a huge repertoire of different music. We do “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson, “Little Lion Man” by Mumford and Sons, and an amazing Kanye West Medley based off of his new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. They have become my family at BU, and rehearsing with them is one of the highlights of my week. They’re also the reason I missed Open House.
It’s a Bostones tradition to go on retreat every spring. This past weekend, The BosTones went on retreat to Vermont. All 17 of us rented out an AMAZING house in Wilmington, VT. We left Friday morning, and spent almost the entire weekend learning new music and hanging out with each other. It was an awesome experience. Hanging out with all of them for an entire weekend was great because all of them are my best friends. But we also made great progress on our repertoire, especially on our Kanye West medley. All in all, it was an amazing weekend with my best friends, and I can’t wait to do it again next year.
For anyone who is even remotely interested in singing here at BU, I strongly encourage you to audition for The BosTones. Check our Facebook page and our website (www.thebostones.com) for more information on auditions in the fall! We’re always looking for new talent, and we’d love to have you be part of the group!
