[Video] A Lesson In The Coda Conduct
Think “Pitch Perfect,” and you’ll understand exactly what The Coda Conduct is. While there is no Anna Kendrick rallying a group of misfits into harmonizing song, The Coda Conduct is still definitely worth a listen. Coda is a coed, a cappella group that has performed on this campus since 2012. Yes, a cappella. This means that every percussion noise, beat, and song comes from the mouths of these students. The only instruments this group uses are their voices, but they are all incredible musicians.
The Coda Conduct is an entirely student-run program, which means these students arrange and rehearse the music on their own. They perform all around campus, including at the Family Clothesline on home game days, at New Student Convocation, THON, and more. They have also performed in the ICCA’s for the past three years. Just like in “Pitch Perfect,” the ICCA’s (International Championship of Collegiate A Capella) is a real competition where college a cappella groups, including The Coda Conduct, go to compete and share their love of music.
I had the pleasure of being able to drop by a rehearsal with The Coda Conduct, and I left there thinking, “Man, I wish I could sing like that.” This video gives an insight into what it is like to be in an elite a cappella group, and the friendships that come from it.
The Coda Conduct is currently raising money to record its first official EP. You can check out more information and donate here.
