St. Maries acappella


St. Maries Acappella or SMAC, as it is affectionately referred to, is the contemporary a cappella music group within St. Maries Musica. It is one of the more recent branches of St. Maries Choral Arts, and has been growing steadily. We perform acappella music ranging from Elvis to Pharrell, and in styles varying from Pentatonix covers to Deke Sharon pieces to original arrangements.  Rehearsals are held every other Friday from 7:00 - 9:30 pm.
