Hound Sound, Assumption’s very own coed a cappella group, had its final performance of the academic year last Saturday, April 16. With an audience of nearly 200, the a cappella group rang out a busy year with our Spring Showcase in Hagan Campus Center.

Decked out in flowery dresses and pastel ties, we sang our hearts out for our family and friends the songs we have been preparing for months.

According to Kara O’Connell, Hound Sound’s Social Media and Marketing Executive, “it was lit.”
The performance included songs ranging from Jason Derulo’s “Trumpets” to Stevie Wonder’s “Signed Sealed Delivered.”

Most of our songs are chosen based on interest, but some were arranged upon request. Worcester’s Pathways for Change sexual assault resource center invited us to sing Lady Gaga’s “Till it Happens to You” at City Hall for the kickoff of Sexual Assault Awareness month.

Each soloist is auditioned and voted on by other members of the group, giving everyone the chance to showcase their spectacular individual talents.

Under the leadership of Stacie DeGrazia and Kayla Higgins, Hound Sound underwent a transformation this year. Going from a small all-female group known as Major Treble to the large co-ed “aca-family,” Hound Sound took a lot of work and commitment from all involved and would not have been possible without such passionate leadership.

We are saddened to be saying goodbye to our dedicated seniors Amanda Clark, DeGrazia and Higgins. Luckily, we get to hold onto powerhouse and senior Jenn Rios for one more semester. It was a great year for Hound Sound ending with our Spring Showcase and receiving Student Government Association’s Club of the Year award.

The incoming Hound Sound presidents, sophomores Holly Olson and Sarah Clancy, have pretty big shoes to fill but are excited to keep up the energy and relationships that are so important to this group.
Be prepared to see some great things coming from Hound Sound, and keep an eye out for our Late Night in the fall.
