Louis Jack Ades's RARB Bio

I've been singing a cappella music since my high school junior year, and in college I joined and sung with Shir Appeal, Tufts' co-ed Jewish a cappella group, for four years. Everything else pretty much snowballed after that. I started taking voice lessons in the second semester of my freshman year at Tufts University, started singing with Tufts Concert Choir in sophomore year, and Tufts Chamber Singers and Opera Ensemble in junior year.

I started arranging a cappella music in my sophomore year for Shir Appeal, and as Associate Director I mentored and gave feedback to other arrangers in the group before we'd sing the final versions of their arrangements. I've been doing vocal percussion for the group for the past three years as well. I've also worked as part of the group's album production team with Plaid Productions.

Over the past year and a half, I've also become heavily invested in singing and arranging barbershop music. Two years ago I formed a test drive quartet with three good friends. In the next semester I joined Vocal Revolution, the barbershop chorus out of Lexington, MA that won WGBH's second season of Sing That Thing! And is currently the five-time consecutive BHS Northeastern District Champion. I formed another barbershop quartet the following summer, and we even got to compete just three months after forming.

I'm a fan of pretty much every major form of a cappella music, but I'm definitely a sucker for vocal jazz. Barbershop has become my favorite to sing because of its accessibility, inclusivity, and because those who sing it are often up to sing pretty much anytime, anywhere, anything.
