OWU hosting fourth ‘A Cappellooaza’

Ohio Wesleyan University’s Campus Programming Board will host the fourth annual “A Cappellooza” voices-only showcase at 7 p.m. Nov. 5 in Gray Chapel in University Hall, 61 S. Sandusky St., Delaware.

The concert will feature movie theme songs performed by student a cappella groups from Ohio Wesleyan, Kenyon College, Wittenberg University, the University of Akron, and more.

The event also will feature an appearance by the Grammy-nominated a cappella group Committed, winners of the second season of NBC’s “The Sing-Off.” The five-man group was created in 2003 and solidified its sound while attending Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama.

In addition to teaching public speaking at Ohio Wesleyan, Gnezda is an accomplished singer, award-winning songwriter, and host of American Public Television’s nationally distributed series “Songs at the Center.” Learn more about Gnezda at http://gnezda.com.
