Catch a free performance by the Berkeley Octet at 2pm this Friday, April 15th in the Sloat auditorium. The UC Men’s Octet is an eight member a cappella singing group comprised of some of the finest male singers at the University of California, Berkeley. Founded in 1948, the Octet has entertained audiences around the world with its unique mesh of close harmonies and zany stage antics. Dazzling fans with wide repertoire of barbershop, doo-wop, contemporary pop, modern alternative, and of course, Cal fight songs, the group has released dozens of recordings over the years. The Octet is also the only two-time champion of the International Competition of Collegiate A Cappella.
