IC Voicestream is proud to have produced a brand-new, 10 track album, "Hit the Beat", that we are so so so so soooo excited about! It features most of the members of ICVS this year, which songs like Mercy by Duffy, Set Fire to the Rain by Adele, and so many more awesome songs! You can listen to a sample HERE
, but even BETTER, you can buy it where it's available on iTunes
Thank you to everyone who had a hand in making this possible! We could not be prouder!
IC VoiceStream is pleased to announce the newest members of Ithaca College's premier coed a cappella group:
We really appreciate everyone coming out today for auditions and for the call-back. We are grateful for your time, wowed by your talent, and hope that you come back and sing for us again next Fall.
The four new members of ICVS will debut with our performance at Concert for a Cure in February!
So, we know everyone says this on every audition ever, but seriously, you folks brought your A game like we've never seen at any ICVS audition. Everyone did a really great job.
However, we had to make some selections on who to call back to hear more from. We have decided on the following singers:
Please be ready to go (wait outside the room you auditioned in) at 4:00pm TODAY. Expect to stay until 5:15 (with an optional percussion circle from 5:15 until 5:30). And bring a water bottle! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if things have changed for you, or call Adam Polaski, pre
If your name is not on this list, please consider auditioning again next year! We'll be taking sopranos and guys and are excited to hear everyone again!
It's been four years since IC VoiceStream
has produced an album, but this year, we've been hard at work learning, mastering, and recording ten of our favorite songs for a new album. We want to capture the spirit of our group, a fun, energetic group of singers who see a cappella, and VoiceStream specifically, as an outlet for creative expression. We're primarily non-music majors, but we see VoiceStream as a way for us to continue making music and ensuring that singing remains an important part of our lives. If you're not familiar with ICVS yet, go to our website and check out the latest YouTube videos
– they’re from our first concert in October!
This CD will feature IC VoiceStream performing some of our most recent and favorite songs, including songs by Guster, Mumford & Sons
, Bob Dylan
. We’ve been hard at work on the recording process of the album for the past month, and now we’re nearly finished.
We’re getting excited to embark on the next steps of the album production process, including editing, mixing, mastering, and printing the physical copies of the CD. In order to successfully meet our goal of having the album completed and finalized by April 2012, we must generate the funds necessary to finance the final steps of this process. We need funding upfront, during the album production process, to pay for the various services necessary to complete the songs on the CD and make them sound as amazing as they can.
We would love your help in this process of financing the CD. The easiest way that you can help out is by buying the album now – pre-ordering it so that when it’s released in April, you’ll already have your copy on its way to you in the mail. Pre-order CDs are $15. If you’d prefer to pre-order the CD and make an additional contribution, we welcome your generosity and encourage you to consider donating to the CD production process; any amount at all — even the $15 from the pre-order of the album — will help our group reach its final goal. DONATE TO OUR KICKSTARTER HERE
. It's an easy and convenient way to donate to ICVS with a debit or credit card!
Thank you for your generosity and consideration.
Love and thanks for ever(long)
In the last two weeks before summer vacation, our group rallied together to arrange, audition, learn, perform and record a new song by The Orion Experience, the awesome band behind "Obsessed With You," one of our most popular covers from Spring 2010.
Check out the entire video here! The song's arranged by Andy Fry, beloved ICVS alum, and features John Vogan on the solo. We'll be performing this song next semester at our shows, so keep an ear out for it!
On Saturday, March 5 at 7:30pm, IC VoiceStream will perform a full concert in Emerson Suites. IC VoiceStream is Ithaca College's premier coed a cappella group, and we're debuting seven new songs!
Join us for a new slate of songs, including "Dog Days Are Over" by Florence + the Machine, "Little Lion Man" by Mumford & Sons, "Runaway Baby" by Bruno Mars and "Love the Way You Lie" by Rihanna and Eminem—plus old favorites!

Help make it easier on us! We've set up this super convenient Kickstarter Project page, where you can donate to us right from your credit or debit card. Or mail us a check! Visit the "DONATE!" page for more information!
If you help us out, you won't JUST get the satisfaction of allowing passionate kids share their work in a finely polished version...we'll also thank you in creative and rewarding ways!
