What the Fhockapella?!

Kenyon’s Fhockapella, a new singing group composed of members of Kenyon’s field hockey

team, debuted in Rosse Hall on Sunday at “Voices of Kenyon,” a charity event hosted by

Gospel Choir. Performing between the established acts Gospel Choir and the Chasers,

Fhockapella energetically took to the stage dressed in team attire: purple jerseys and T­shirts

that declared “Lady Up.” Members Christine Bloom ’16 and Julia Richards ’17 soloed “Ain’t Got

Far To Go” by Jess Glynne to the audience’s abundant enthusiasm. The concept for

Fhockapella originated when a mix of members with varying levels of singing experience began

talking about starting a group. Already, they have recorded themselves singing the national

anthem, which they played before their home games this season. Though not yet an official

student organization, the group has expressed interest in holding more performances in settings

similar to “Voices of Kenyon,” according to Richards. For now, at least, Fhockapella’s recording

of the national anthem will remain a staple before their home games.
