YellowJackets in the national spotlight

YellowJackets

No pianos. No drums. No guitars. This fall, with just their voices, 15 undergraduates from the College and Eastman School will recreate some of today’s most popular songs as they perform on NBC’s The Sing-Off.

The YellowJackets, the University’s oldest male a cappella group (pictured above at a performance last spring), will compete against 15 of the country’s best groups, working to win over celebrity judges Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), Shawn Stockman (Boyz II Men), and solo artist Sara Bareilles while vying for the ultimate prize—a Sony Music recording contract and a $200,000 cash prize. The season debuted Sept. 19.
