High-spirited audience appreciates all-vocal show
Congratulations are in order for the
UNC Clef Hangers' second annual a
cappella invitational, a hit well appreci
ated by the sell-out crowd in Carroll
Hall Saturday night.
Saturday night's program featured
Speak of the Devil from Duke Univer
sity, The Extractions from UNC Dental
and Medical Schools, Virginia Gentle
men from the University of Virginia,
Vocal Point from the University of
Rochester and the Clef Hangers.
It was clear that the audience was in
high spirits and expecting great talent
from these performances as they enthu
siastically applauded the Clef Hangers'
rendition of a Beatles' favorite,"I Wanna
Hold Your Hand." From then on, it was
an evening of smooth sailing through a
sea of great sounds.
Speak of the Devil, a group which
formed a year ago, got the audience's
attention with a humorous song outlin
ing their history as a group and their
background. They sang selections from
the past such as the "Happy Days" theme
song and"Brown-EyedGirl."They also
touched on the soulful side of melody
with "He Ain't Heavy, He's My
Brother." Overall, they were a talented
and humorous ensemble to watch.
The Extractions, a group consisting
of only five members, performed an
exciting version of "It's So Hard to Say
Goodbye" and some old favorites such
as "Run Around Sue" and "Stand By
The audience also enjoyed the
group's skit depicting Eric Montross
getting mutilated by Duke players in the
recent UNC-Duke game. According to

Nancy Ingram, a member of the
Loreleis, pointed out that Virginia
Gentlemen are "always awesome." The
audience agreed as they gave the men a
standing ovation and were thrilled with
the encore they received.
Vocal Point, the only female group
in Saturday night's program, gave an
interesting performance as it refreshed
the audience by showing things from a
woman's point of view.
From the confrontational tone in "I
Heard It Through the Grapevine" to the
haunting melody of a Eurythm ics selec

The Clef Hangers, performing last,
were animated throughout their presen

of togetherness by huddling in a group
during their serious selections. One song
in particular, "Somebody," seemed to
capture the audience as the tender lyrics
told of a man's quest for true love.
The Clefs also entertained the audi
ence with a skit outlining some typical
UNC campus perils such as the Pit

garnered much applause and returned
for an upbeat encore.
