Home"Sing-Off" Finalists the Beelzebubs to Perform at Vermont A Cappella Concert

From The Web's picture

Most people around the U.S. first got to know Tufts University's a cappella singing group the Beelzebubs during their second-place finish recent TV contest "The Sing-Off." But many folks in the Brattleboro, Vermont area are well aware of the "Bubs," as well as other  college a cappella groups, through an annual concert that has been held in the town the last six years. 

This year's Collegiate A Cappella Show, the seventh, will be held on February 6th and will include eight groups from colleges from New England. (Tickets for the concert already sold out, no doubt due to the inclusion of the Beelzebubs and the publicity their TV appearances have created.) The groups participating are: the Boston College Heightsmen, Dartmouth Aires, Ithaca Voicestream, Tufts Beelzebubs, UNH Noteables, UVM Cat’s Meow, and Wesleyan Spirits.

The concert is a benefit for the Brattleboro Museum, and the show adds local appeal by featuring singing groups that have at least one member who is a graduate of one of the high schools in the Brattleboro area.

 For the Bubs, that person is Brattleboro native Penn Rosen. Although the Bubs have 15 members, Rosen has several solos during "The Sing-Off," most notably when he took the lead during the group's rendition of "Sweet Caroline," during which Rosen produced a bunch of roses and stepped off the stage to hand them to judge Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls.
