Algoncapella At Wick Choral Festival

Algoncapella performed on Saturday, January 27 at the Wick Choral Festival at St. Mark’s School in Southborough. They were one of eight high school groups who performed that night and were treated to a performance by the award-winning Nor’Easters from Northeastern University. This is the third year that they’ve performed at this Festival. The Myron A. Wick, Jr. Choral Festival is a two evening a cappella festival offered annually in memory of SM alumnus Myron A. Wick ’33, and in honor of his lifelong enjoyment of singing. It was established in 1992 through the generosity of the Wick family and friends. The Festival always includes an audience singalong of Lida Rose, Myron Wick’s favorite song.
