For this project, I have elected to create a documentary detailing the chronological history of the University of Akron’s all-male contemporary pop a Cappella group, Nuance. The Documentary is titled: “Brothers, Sing On: the Story of Nuance” as a reference to the song “Brothers, Sing On!” by Edvard Grieg, and was named such because of the theme of brotherhood I have showcased in the documentary. I have been a member of Nuance since the Spring Semester of 2018 and have served as the president of the group since Spring Semester 2019. Nuance was founded in 2004, making it one of the longest-standing student organizations at the University. Nuance’s alumni base continues to be supportive and attentive to the group’s current events, often coming to visit at evening rehearsals, local performances, and the end of semester concerts. However, much of the group’s history has not been recorded in any tangible form, and is left up to word-of-mouth, guessing, or rumors. With this documentary, I interviewed some of the group’s most influential and long-standing members to provide their accounts on the group’s most pivotal moments.
