Elon’s only all female a cappella group had it’s last concert of the year on Saturday. The group is made up of 14 women and is very well known in the world of college a cappella. Their last album, Coming Into Focus, was runner-up for the Contemporary A cappella Society award for Best Female Collegiate Album and in 2007 the group placed third in the International Championship of Collegiate A cappella quarterfinal competition and was awarded Best Choreography.

Drawing in a crowd of over a hundred people the concert was a huge success. Seniors Lauren France and Lizzie Napier performed a special version of the song “For Good” from the musical Wicked.

“They sounded amazing,” said Elon senior Jenn Keldie. “I was blown away at how good the concert was, especially their duet.”

Keldie came with 15 friends who were all really excited to see their friends performing.

As the only two seniors France and Napier were pretty emotional after the concert.

“It is really bitter sweet,” France said. “I mean it feels great to see how all our hard work paid off but it is sad when I realized that this is my last concert with Sigs.”

Napier shared similar sentiments and was surrounded by friends and family following the concert.

“I just can’t believe it’s over,” Napier said. “I am really going to miss it all.”

While this was the last concert of the year for Sigs Elon’s all male a cappella group, Rip Chord, will perform Thursday night and the coed group, Twisted Measure, will have their spring concert on May 8 and 9.
