The Acousticals

The Acousticals, a The Acousticals puts a fun twist on performing a capella music. The group performs "Rockapella" style music using just their voices as instruments in a style all their own at H-SC. This exciting, goofy group performs vocal spectacles from the genres of hip-hop, country, pop, rap, contemporary, and classics-using beat boxing, face melting guitar fills, and even a bit of dancing (to woo the girls of course...). The group travels to other colleges, as well as performs every semester here on The Hill.

Auditions are held at the beginning of each semester, so if you love to sing and you have a naturally energetic disposition, this group is for you.

The Men's Chorus 

The Hampden-Sydney Men's Chorus is one of the oldest official student organizations on campus. Its roots can be traced back to the 1820s. Membership is open to any student interested in choral singing. Members of the chorus earn one hour of academic credit for each semester in which they are enrolled. The repertoire for the Chorus is varied, and includes traditional "Glee Club" style sea shanties and school songs, as well as classical and folk music.

To participate, contact Professor von Rueden, Director of Choral Activities.

The Animation Society

The Animation Society is a student led organization which is dedicated to the group enjoyment of animation. The Society's main focus on campus is not only to have fun while watching animation together but also to educate the community of Hampden-Sydney College that animation is for all ages. The club views cell-based and CGI animation from across the globe. While our main focus is Japanese anime, we also explore animation of other cultures such as French, German, and American.
