Have any of you seen Dartmouth College on TV lately? The Dartmouth Aires, one of Dartmouth’s most prestigious a cappella groups as well as its oldest, has been dominating on NBC’s “The Sing Off.” With only two other collegiate a cappella groups remaining (the University of Rochester YellowJackets and the University of Rochester Deltones), they’ve set themselves apart from the competition as the team to beat. If you haven’t had a chance to watch them just yet, don’t worry. We believe you’ll have more opportunities to check them out as they advance towards the finals of the singing competition with a Sony music recording contract at stake.
Dressed always in ridiculously colorful outfits with stripes and plaids (and colorful shoes as well), they tend to dance a whole lot more than the other groups and thus raise the energy. And one of their lead singers, Michael Odokara-Okigbo, a recent Dartmouth grad and whose mother recently suffered a stroke, is head and shoulders above every single singer in the competition. His poise and voice are truly phenomenal. And Clark Moore adds quite a bit of personality with his hairstyle, smile, and that big kick he can do.
If you’re interested in singing in an a cappella group at a college like Dartmouth, you should check out this singing competition show as the Dartmouth Aires are worth watching. Check out this post on Ivy League A Cappella and let us know your thoughts on the Dartmouth Aires by posting below!
