Pet peeve: an arrangement that completely disregards or misunderstands the meaning of a song. Exhibit A: The recording of "Sail Away" on Tonic Sol-Fa's latest album "Just One of Those Days." Let me state for the record that I think Tonic Sol-Fa is an excellent, hard working group. They're performing over 100 shows a year, tearing up the Midwest, bringing contemporary a cappella to long-standing fans while making new converts at every show. They deserve praise for their consistency and indefatigability.
So I have finished my first "from scratch" chart. It's a source-true arrangement of Sting's "Fortress Around Your Heart", and so far the only thing I've heard it on is my PC's MIDI Synth software. But I like it and am rather proud that I actually did it.

Hello CASA! We are DoubleShot! from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. featureimage:
I am putting together a new article series for CASAcademy on fundraising a cappella groups. One topic I will be covering is getting funding from your college - whether from the school's administration itself, through an arts department, or from the student association or the like. Except I only know about that at the school I went to! featureimage:
