Welcome to the new & improved Section 8 website. This site has been made especially for simple changes. this means that we can update more often and keep you more well-informed. So check back often for updates. A couple of things you may have already noticed, we now have a music player and some other Flash elements in the website. You'll need the latest edition of flash for the best experience. Have fun poking around while we finish things up, and if you notice any problems with the site, please let our webmaster know.
A little info about us:
Founded in 1991, Section 8 began as an eight member collegiate a cappella ensemble, born out of the Singing Men of Ohio, the Ohio University Menís Glee Club. Section 8 has grown over the years from 8, to 12, to now 15 members and takes its name from the military term when an enlisted soldier is discharged due to mental incompetence. Dr. Raymond Feener was the first president of The Singing Men of Ohio, lovingly known as SMO, and also was the founder and first director of Section 8. The group is now student led by all members varying in musical experience and knowledge. Section 8 has performed for many Ohio University engagements and organizations over the years, alumni chapters and societies, and has performed the National Anthem for various sporting events. In 2003 they traveled to Penn State for the International Collegiate A Cappella Competition, and held their first a cappella Invitational in April of that year. The invitational has now become an annual event and features all of the a cappella groups on OUís campus. The group also released their first CD, "We May Be Disturbed..." in October 2003.
