Pipeline Vocal Project is Alaska’s first professional a cappella trio comprised of a lead, bass and vocal percussion. Lisa Hawkins started the group shortly after coming back to Alaska following 7 years of involvement in the a cappella industry as a performer, arranger, director, and choreographer. With a goal to bring the contemporary a cappella culture up north, she reached out to Adriana Latonio who she sang with in the same studio as kids, then put out a call to singers in Alaska on Facebook where she was connected with Molly Dieni. As they say, the rest is history. Pipeline Vocal Project is a new group with a mission to spread the love of contemporary a cappella in Alaska through performance and education. By doing workshops, masterclasses, and performances, they hope to bring the joy of Acappella into the school system and community. PVP believes it is now more important than ever to ensure Alaska’s music scene still thrives and continues to create opportunities for singers of all ages.
UAA Glee Club is a group of UAA students and alumni who create and perform a variety of cappella music (including but not limited to pop, rock, R&B, hip hop, and musical theatre). Members range in ability and experience from the promising beginner to the seasoned performer. Members also range from different backgrounds and majors. The Club strives to facilitate and nourish genuine friendships to build a strong sense of community while indulging and growing in the love of music and singing.
