I hate to admit it, but I can never remember Zach Johnston's name, and I have no idea why. I love his singing. I can always remember what he looks like, but his name has alluded me whenever I try to proselyte people to become Octet lovers. I promise I will do better to remember Zach's name.
Update: Zach. Zach. Zach. Got it. Maybe I just needed to confess that I couldn't remember. Or maybe it's that I'm a kinetic leaner. :D
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!)
