A Capella Update

In late January we decided to expand Maximum Ten O'Clock and held auditions. There were about 15 students at auditions this time around, mostly girls. We took two, Jean and Firdha.

The group learned three songs last year - 1, 2, 3, 4, Stand By Me, and The Lion Sleeps Tonight. We started in January with the group's toughest assignment yet, the Beatles' Yesterday. In February we added L O V E (L is for the way you etc.) - the going has been very slow. We have not had all our members at a group rehearsal since early in January (and it is now mid-March).

Hopefully we can make a push and get those two new songs polished for a Festival Dwi Warna performance. Festival DW is the biggest student event of the year. The event is sponsored by local businesses and brings in a celebrity Indonesian band. Student groups perform and sports competitions are held. It takes place from April 12-17, which gives Maximum Ten O'Clock about a month to get its act together.
