Because we have more a cappella singing than any other city in the country!

  • The University of Michigan has more a cappella groups than any other university in the country.
  • We have a Barbershop Harmony Society chorus (The Huron Valley Harmonizers) and a Sweet Adelines chorus (Voices in Harmony).
  • We have other colleges and universities (Eastern Michigan University, Washtenaw Community College) and high schools (Pioneer, Huron, Skyline, Saline) which have great a cappella singing programs.
  • We have many community choruses and religious institutions which include a cappella singing in their repertoires.
