I saw this in my YouTube feed this afternoon. In fact I just finished watching it. Prepare to have your hair blown back. Blown back by FUN!
I hate change. That's what my friends would tell you, and I freely admit it. It's my issue. I get used to how things are and then, boom, I have to remember how things used to be. And sometimes change is a good thing. I never realize that until after the fact, but there are changes that are for the better. So, it comes with both a glad and heavy heart that I must tell you that some of the current Octet will soon be "Oldtet". Oh, we may see them with the occasional alumni joining the Octet on stage to sing "Princess Papuli" or "I Get Around" during Spring Show or we might remember old favorites as we peruse YouTube's older videos, but they will, from next semester onward, be "Oldtet".
Lawrence Chu who has been in the group forever, Aroon Vijaykar who joined the group slightly after forever and Parth Bhatt whose name I just learned, will be leaving the Octet at the end of the semester. It's always difficult until I see the new group gel.
Next semester, the Octet will have some new voices joining them in song. Welcome Zach Johnston and Kyle Crews! I'm sure that they will be wonderful new additions to the Octet! They will probably have another audition to make up the remaining open spot. Well, that's about it for this post - THE FIRST ONE IN APRIL?!? What exactly have I been doing with my time?
Oh, and the Octet will be doing an Unbuttoned show (It's FREE, people. Go if you're able to!)

Bless Your Face,
Just a short shout out to the newest members of the UC Men's Octet! Parth Bhatt (Tenor 1), Ryan Tabura (Tenor 2), Jordan Edwards (Tenor 2), Patrick Wong (Baritone) and Jeff Nathan (Bass) have joined the solid current members - Isaac Jackson (Tenor 1), Aroon Vijaykar (Baritone) and Lawrence Chu (Bass) to complete the 2010-2011 UC Men's Octet. Best of luck to you in the coming year, and I can't wait to see what you will do to dazzle and amaze your fans!
Thanks for keeping us entertained! Isaac Jackson & Keith Menconi "keepin' it high" on Tenor 1, Albert Han and Brett Goldstein "keepin' it real" on Tenor 2, Georffrey Wing and Aroon Vijaykar "keepin' on keepin' on" on Baritone & Lawrence Chu and Quang Nguyen "keepin' it gangsta fabulous" on Bass.
Love the look into the private world of Octo-guy-dom. The photomontage and singing were excellent. :)
Looks like I missed the guys were in Seattle (sitting on Rachael - the bronze pig) @ 1:24
Not sure who is leaving this time around, but good luck to all the guys.
PS, if you actually say 'awww', let me know. :)
PPS: Thank you, Hilary, for catching the name faux pas. I did, at some point, know Brett's last name is Goldstein. It's all fixted now.
