Since my days as a Penn undergrad, I've always been a fan of Off the Beat and the talent the group gets from year to year.
Recently the group came to LA during their spring break and put on a great show.
After the jump, listen to some really powerful voices from both their LA performance and from a preview spring show video promoting their Spring show this weekend.
In their spring show preview video below, listen to the power behind freshman Janelle McDermoth's (C'14) voice. (around 1:29). Wow!
