FRCS A Cappella & Cantata

Dynamix (Mixed Group Grades 9-12)  

High school students who are interested in learning to sing with other singers using vocal harmonies and choreography are invited to audition. The FRCS A Cappella group has performed at a number of venues at the school and in the community including the 9/11 FRCS Memorial Service, for the Providence Bruins, the Foxboro Senior Center, and for the FRCS Board of Directors. The FRCS A Cappella group is now a regular contestant in the ICHSA competition.

The Latest A Cappella News: Coming off of a successful winter concert the A Cappella group is exploring avenues of improvement.  Dynamix is preparing for its annual jaunt to the ICHSA competition.  The combined groups img_1281 are now beginning to prepare for both Celebrate Arts Night and the Great East Festival.  To maximize our chances for success during adjudication the groups are exploring the use of musical accompaniment or “Cantata” to enhance the sound of the group.  This will add a whole new dimension and a richness to the ensemble as we move to the next level of performance for our vocal music program.  We wish the groups all the best as they embark on their endeavors in preparation for the great things to come!
