Description

Mayflower Chill, formed last spring, introduces Colby to non-traditional a cappella numbers, and shows a dedication to music and friendship. Mayflower Chill brings a fresh, energetic sound to Colbys rich A Cappella scene. Through ethnographic research, including field interviews with students and observations of the rehearsal dynamic, this study uncovers students passion for artistic expression, even within an extracurricular and friendly atmosphere. Student-led musical groups on campus allow for exploration in the world of music for non-music majors and people who want to incorporate music in their lives, not just for those who intend to pursue music as a career. Mayflower Chill diversifies the selection of musical performance at Colby and provides a niche for students with a desire to make unconventional music.
