Amphitheater Guidelines

In the Amphitheater we sit back and share a good song, offer a movie review, discuss sports, or anything in entertainment and family enjoyment.

If you need to refresh yourself on the decorum, now would be a good time.

    During The Sing-Off, Pentatonix visited the administrative offices of The Trevor Project, an American non-profit organization founded in 1998 and the leading national organization focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. The group shared their experiences of overcoming bullying and recorded a Public service announcement. A 60-second spot about The Trevor Project aired during the live finale, but it was met with considerable controversy as the producers edited out LGBTQ references and failed to acknowledge the orientations of Grassi and Hoying, who are both openly gay.

    They were big before (from winning Season 3 of The Sing-Off), but the way they've used YouTube has kept them constantly in the limelight.

    Especially since Mitch and Scott have their own channel (Superfruit), and fans can see how quirky and hilarious they are in real life, in addition to being mesmerized with their musicality.

    I can say with certainty (from substitute teaching at all levels of public school) that Pentatonix has singlehandedly gotten at least two generations of kids hooked on the a capella format.

    It helps that they're taking really quite terrible pop songs and turning them into vocal works of art, which is not only a testament to their abilities as arrangers (which is the great unsung bit of heroics in the music world), but their RANGE...

    Good Lord, their RANGE!

    Plus all of their original work is MAGICAL, and they need to do more of it.

    I sometimes follow a Cappella groups. After hearing their "Mary did you know" cover, I want to hear more! It's amazing how their use of YouTube is making them big this year!
