Sibling groups Blackappella and POCappella bring their “final jam” to the Josten Mezzanine!

December 8, 2023
5 p.m.
Josten Library Mezzanine

Blackappella, aka “the Berries,” root their repertoire in their Black identity and history, including traditional spiritual music, provocative jams, and rich ballads sung by singers of color.

POCappella, the newest acappella group on campus, known as POCA, comprises students from a range of racial and ethnic identities singing a diverse repertoire in several languages and inviting the audience to experience their cultures with them.

Berries and POCA are happy to include Fish Tube for an instrumental intermission.

JostenLive! Is free, brief, and open to all.
