Now, after you’ve heard show #62, I want to tell you a few more things. First, go to the Town Criers facebook page linked to above. There you’ll find a couple of videos of their competition set. Fun choreo with the opening number (Lion Sleeps Tonight)! Second, Amanda Roeder has been doing -awesome- work with the students at Marblehead. Every time they come out with something new, I’m floored all over again. There’s a great local article on Amanda and the Marblehead groups at http://www.wickedlocal.com/. I know I’m heaping a lot of praise on Amanda, but she’s just the directing force, and I want to call out the amazing students she has, with their hard work, energy, and above all, passion and talent. Lastly, I want to once again direct everyone to http://www.casa.org/acanom where you can submit your nominations for this year’s ACAs, including, new this year, an ACA award for best a cappella podcast! *nudge, nudge*
