The Coda Conduct to Record First Single
Instead of simply waiting for one of the a cappella group’s concerts, people will soon be able to carry the instrument-less musings of the Coda Conduct with them everywhere. The group is set to record its first single in March.
The Coda Conduct, one of Penn State’s a cappella groups, launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording of its first single last Friday. The group needed $1,000 to record, and it has already exceeded that, with $1,130 already raised for the cause.
A relatively new group in Penn State a cappella scene, the Coda Conduct was established in 2012. The group has since performed on campus, across the state and at the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella.
“We feel that recording a single would be the next step in continuing our growth as an a cappella group,” said Ricky Jabarin, co-founder and musical director of The Coda Conduct.
The project provides The Coda Conduct with the unique opportunity that few young musicians have had: recording in a studio.
“Most of our members have never recorded in a studio before,” Jabarin said. “We are extremely excited to share that experience with each other.”
Although the Kickstarter was funded within the first 24 hours of its launch, donations are still being accepted until December 1. A $10 pledge guarantees an early download of the single before its official release.
“The recording will be something we can share with the public to show our hard work and dedication to music,” Jabarin said.
