Free Verse is a student-run A Cappella group made up of Oakland Catholic and Central Catholic students that was started last year by Central Catholic graduate, Tucker Helms (now a freshmen at CMU). In their first year, the group took second place at both the Quarterfinals and Semifinals of the ICHSA Competition. After their competitive season ended, they performed at Central's spring concert and Oakland's spring arts and music festival. This year has been a rebuilding year for the group. The majority of Free Verse's members last year were seniors, so auditions were hosted in May of last school year to bring in a lot of new people. In A Cappella it is very important to find a group of talented people who have a passion for music and performing and the group has that!
