Are you in an a cappella group on campus? Do you sing in a band or a choir or maybe just in the shower? Did you dream of growing up to be a rock star? Maybe you still do.

Juice Vocal Ensemble is an experimental a cappella trio out of London. Featuring sopranos Anna Snow and Sarah Dacey, and alto Kerry Andrew, the group mixes contemporary classical with folk, jazz, pop, electronica, and world music. Their debut album Songspin (2011) won an Independent Music Award for “Best Contemporary Classical Album” in May 2012.
Juice comes to Wesleyan as part of their first U.S. tour since an appearance at the South by Southwest Festival in March 2011. Following the sing-a-long on Friday afternoon, they will perform in Crowell Concert Hall this Saturday, November 9, 2013 at 8pm. Their set will include original arrangements of British folk songs and pop music by Guns N’ Roses, Erasure, Mariah Carey, and Flatt and Scruggs; as well as compelling classical works by U.K. composers including Gabriel Prokofiev; six U.S. premieres, including one work written by Anna Snow; and the world premiere of “Ferrara Redux” by New York-based composer and Wesleyan alumnus Toby Twining MA ’06
