Amplify is a co-ed a cappella group of 14 members, founded in 2012 at Wheaton College. The first group of its kind, Amplify has pursued an informal spirit of performance, including vocal improvisation and audience participation, while maintaining musical excellence. Past performances include the Uptown Getdown, hosted by Wheaton in Chicago, the Motown Revue at Wheaton College, and several visits to Franklin Middle School.
Amplify explores both contemporary and traditional styles of music interpreted through a cappella singing, and focusing on a theme of unity and togetherness. It culminates the hard work and focus of the group every year at the spring concert. Amplify's year-end concert in 2013 was a campus sensation, drawing more than 300 students and members of the public. Amplify is also involved in the community of Wheaton and the surrounding area through volunteer performance. The members of the group are listed below.
Auditions are held at the beginning of every fall semester. Audition dates for vocal percussionists and all voice parts will be announced at the beginning of each school year.
