Spooky! OSI Approves Another A Capella Group
CARNEY HALL — In a controversial decision, the Office of Student Involvement (OSI) approved the formation of another a capella group on campus last Friday. The newly formed group, The Pottertones, will be Boston College’s first Harry Potter-themed singing group.
“I was shocked when I realized there wasn’t a Harry Potter singing group on campus,” said group founder Hedwig Crowling (MCAS ‘20). “I mean, c’mon, every building on this campus looks like it’s from Hogwarts!”
OSI representative Jenny Effett was surprised by the new group’s initiative.
“We felt that, despite the presence of 11 other a capella groups on campus, this one actually had a pretty distinct idea to separate itself from the others,” said Effett, while haphazardly pounding her “approved” stamp onto the group’s formation documents. “A Harry Potter group should really flesh out the music scene here, and if not, who cares?”
The Pottertones’ repertoire is set to include the Harry Potter theme as its headline song. Along with featuring no instruments, their music won’t feature words either. The Boston College community is “beyond excited” to hear another group of primarily white people sing the word “doo” over and over again.
At press time, Martin Jarmond rejected the formation of a men’s Quidditch team due to Title IX restrictions.
