Acappellics Anonymous was granted $1,549.00 by the Student Government Association on Tuesday to finish producing its debut album.
“I’m asking for SGA to be a catalyst so that we can start off and get our name out there and help us succeed,” said Ariana Conte, the president of Acappellics Anonymous.
Last year, the group came in second place at the Acapellics Society of America competition, according to to the organization. The reward was 10 hours of recording time in Bristol Studios, which has paid for about half of the group’s CD so far, the sophomore performing arts major said.
Acappelics previously raised $210.00 through donations from previous members.
Katie Ruggiero, the communication sciences and disorders senator, motioned to allocate Acappellics Anonymous the full amount. Tanya Flink, the executive treasurer, seconded it.
The motion passed in a unanimous vote by all present members.
With the money allocated, the group plans on making 200 copies of the CD, Conte said.
