A cappella. By definition, it's simply the art of human vocal performance, unaccompanied and pure. But when Ben Jensen arrives for his freshman year at Brighton University, he finds himself caught in a chorus of forbidden romance and fierce competition.

After Brighton University's Student Government announces that it will be cutting one of the a cappella groups from the activities budget, the competitive singers attempt to sabotage the other ensembles and establish theirs as the best group on campus. Joining the fray are the singing fraternity "bros" in the Gobfellas; the lovably wholesome Chorderoys; the "sisters in song" in the Notabelles; the geeky nice guys in the Dinos; and "a cappella with chutzpah " from La*chaim.

Written by a young post-a cappella alum, AcaPolitics stands poised to entertain mainstream audiences and music buffs alike.
