Three Lafayette student a cappella groups have advanced to the regional semifinal round of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, which will be held 2 p.m. Saturday at Cornell University.

Lafayette is the only school that had three groups earn spots in the competition.

Quintessence, a jazz group, and The Chorduroys, a male ensemble, advanced by finishing third and fourth, respectively, in the Mid-Atlantic divisional competition hosted Nov. 12 by Rutgers University. Chemical engineering major Kaytlin Henry ’07 (Little Egg Harbor, N.J.) of Quintessence received an Outstanding Arrangement award for “I Dream of Jeannie.”

Cadence, a female ensemble, advanced by taking third place at the divisional contest hosted Dec. 4 by Rochester Institute of Technology. Toni Ahrens ’05 (Hamilton, N.Y.), a double major in psychology and English with a concentration in theater, was named Outstanding Soloist.

A total of 11 groups are competing in the regional semifinals at Cornell. In addition to Lafayette, they represent Johns Hopkins, Cornell, Rutgers, Ithaca College, and the universities of Rochester, Maryland, and Delaware.

The Friends of Lafayette Music has chartered a bus that will take the students to the competition.
