Westerville, OH—A brand new student-run a cappella group called Ottertuned will host 100 high school singers for a day of music lessons culminating in a performance at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23, at the Battelle Fine Arts Center, 170 W. Park St.
Ottertuned members will work with high school students who share a passion for a cappella music from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. in the Battelle Fine Arts Center. The 100 students will be split into smaller ensembles to learn about vocal percussion and a cappella history.
At 4 p.m., the singers will perform in a concert, demonstrating what they learned. “It will be fun to perform alongside the high school students, but even more fun to teach them,” said Andrews.
Ottertuned is a pop a cappella group with a mission to foster collaborative musical relationships among Otterbein and the community. The group is a mixed ensemble, with both men and women singers, open to students of any major. There are 26 members including President Tim Andrews and Musical Directors Ryan Hutcherson and Kathleen Pellington, who are all co-founders of the group.
Ottertuned will perform its first public concert at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1, at the Westerville Old Bag of Nails, 24 N. State St.
