It seems a lot of people are discussing auditions lately. We've got lots of great League groups that are forming or growing, and scholastic groups are only weeks away from the new school year. In that vein, I wanted to throw out a couple resources for those who are currently planning auditions.
Vocal Chords is the weekly a cappella and vocal music show from 90.3 KRNU at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, heard live on Friday mornings at 8 a.m., central time (GMT -06:00) with a replay in the same time slot the following Sunday morning. Both the Friday and Sunday shows stream in real time on the station’s web site http://krnu.unl.edu or via the 90.3 KRNU stream in the college/university radio category on iTunes. Back live after a week away.

(remember, the point of this is to think about how, or if, this applies to a cappella groups) Question: What sets the great, super-successful magic acts apart from the less-successful ones? In pt 1.5 of 2 I discussed what I meant when I said there are only so many tricks. The content of a magic show is not going to be that different from one act to another. So what makes some great, and others less so? featureimage:
