IU’s many a cappella groups will come together on Wednesday for a free winter showcase, according to the Indiana Memorial Union Board’s website.

Union Board organized the event to provide a break from dead week stress and upcoming final exams, according to the event’s Facebook page.

The show will feature performances from Ladies First, Hooshir, Another Round, Crimson Cadence and Resting Pitch Face.

While these groups will all perform holiday songs in a cappella arrangements, the groups vary stylistically.

This diversity comes from each group’s makeup – some comprise all female singers like Ladies First, while others, like Hooshir, cater toward Jewish or Hebrew influences.

All groups have performed throughout the semester individually, but this concert will be the first time students can enjoy their diverse sounds in the same show.

Union Board will also offer other study break activities like coloring, yoga and writing at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Sassafras Room, according to Union Board’s website.
