It was standing room only the Morrison Room of the Davidson College Union on Monday, February 26, as the college's female a cappella singing group "The Delilahs" performed a special concert to celebrate the release of their CD, Falling Into Place.
Nearly 100 students, faculty and staff gathered for the concert and a chance to purchase the 15-track, CD, which includes "Bohemian Rhapsody," "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet," and "Time After Time." The group sang selections from the CD in its first performance with the newest members of the group, who represent the Class of 2004.
The Delilahs was formed in 1998 under the leadership of Mary Towles Alison, Eileen Dwyer, and Grace Robinson of the Class of 1999, and current seniors Anna Katherine Clemmons, Page Neubert, and Ida Wainschel. Falling Into Place was recorded last fall in Lingle Chapel of Davidson College Presbyterian Church, and at HyperActive Studios in Rock Hill, S.C.
"This was a culmination of our efforts over the years," said Wainschel. "This project was for us, especially the seniors, and also for the family, friends, and fans with whom we love to share our music."
Along with Clemmons, Neubert and Wainschel, Falling Into Place also features the voices of Jennifer Joslin '01, Stephanie Kohler '01, Darcy Peifer '01, Katie Young '01, Carrie Frazier '02, Sharon Meidt '03, Merideth Shuba '03, and Ashlee White '03. The newest "Delilahs" are first year students Pryor Dawson, Grace Pate, Denielle Erikson, Alison Heck, and Maggie McDougal.
The Delilahs plan to use profits from sales of their CD for future recordings, participation in competitions, and contributions to local charities.
The cost of the CD is $10. For more information, or to place an order, call 704/894-6219.
