A Capella Night features On The Rocks

Alpha Chi Omega sorority will host a night of a capella talent on Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in Smith Auditorium. Featured performers include University of Oregon groups On The Rocks and Divisi, as well as Willamette’s Tandem, Up Top and Headband.

A small purple ribbon adorns invitations to A Capella Night — a dedication to the victims and survivors of domestic violence. Proceeds from this annual event benefit the Salem Mid-Valley Women’s Crisis Center.

On The Rocks was the pioneer in a capella for the Northwest region and has since celebrated tremendous success. Most recently, the men were featured on NBC’s “The Sing Off,” elevating them to the national scale.

“For as long as I have been a member of Alpha Chi Omega, On The Rocks has been a part of A Capella Night,” says Jaci Abeloe. “But since The Sing Off, demand for their performances has skyrocketed. We are extremely grateful to have them performing for our cause.”

According to Abeloe, A Capella Night is not only a way to financially support the Crisis Center, but it also reaffirms the deep connection between the Salem and Willamette communities.

Tickets

The sorority will sell tickets in Goudy Commons during the week of Nov. 6, Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. Tickets will also be sold at the door. General admission tickets are $8, or $5 for students with I.D.
