    Edgecombe Community College is pleased present a fun evening of a capella singing on Friday, February 17. The term “a capella” (spelled “a cappella” in Italian) is a Latin phrase, meaning “in the style of the chapel.” The modern day use of the term in music is understood to mean “voices without instrumental accompaniment.” The February 17 concert features two of the regions premier collegiate male a capella ensembles, The Clef Hangers of UNC-Chapel Hill and The Pitchforks of Duke University. Both groups feature 12-16 singers who will perform close harmonies in a musical renewal of the famed Tobacco Road rivalry.
