The Game of Stacking Voices

Description: The pandemic made singing a real challenge for young a cappella groups over the last two years, especially since online meeting tools are limited in their ability to replicate real-time ensemble singing.

TAG is now looking forward to adjusting back to live (and real life), communicating to the audience directly with their voice.
