Great Vibes and Better Blend: Diversions A Cappella at Mount Holyoke College

read here

“The syllables of the Diversions’ a cappella parts have both a phonological expression and phonetic expression. In order to blend properly, every Div must have some underlying awareness of the differences between these forms for every song. The phonological expression is what is anticipated and spoken about by the group, while the phonetic realization is the actual production of the syllables as they appear in certain songs.”
