Congratulations to Vega, the 2014 International Championships of High School A Cappella (ICHSA) finals runner-up! The Eagles placed second among the nation's top 10 groups at Peter Norton Symphony Space on Broadway in New York City on April 25.
Tuning up before their trip to New York City, members of Vega performed an a cappella version of “Wings” by artist Little Mix live on the MIX 107.7 Morning Show April 22.
The radio appearance is one of many highlights from what has been another whirlwind year for CJ’s immensely successful performing arts ensemble. Vega qualified for nationals after winning the Ohio Valley Semifinal for the second consecutive year in March. In addition, the group’s single “Circus” off their second studio album Elevation was named runner-up in the 2014 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards for best high school song on April 12. Vega is also the No. 4 ranked high school group in America according to AcaRank.com.
Vega performs under the direction of Joe Whatley ‘04, who founded the group at his alma mater four years ago. The 2013-14 ensemble features students Cassidy Aughe, Katy Harrington, Ayanna Hayes, Addi Helms, Bobby Krupa, David Marshall, Kaylee Piatt and Sean Stewart.
