Changing the scene

Grand Valley State University student Kyle Norton began playing instruments at a young age, and when he came to college he decided to use his musical talents to form the one-man band the Nortroniks. After years of developing as a solo electronic music artist, Norton has expanded the band to include drummer Christian Grow, who is also a GVSU student.

Harmonizing as individuals and as a community

For the past five years, the Grand Valley State University chapter of SAI Mu Alpha has hosted A Cappell-Off. A Cappell-Off is a competition that brings a cappella groups from around the Midwest to compete for titles such as best overall group, best male group, best mixed group and best female group. This year, not only will groups from four different states compete, but also all four of GVSU’s a cappella groups will go head to head.
