Atkins now has two A Cappella groups, a "Golden Girls" female group and a "Maroon 13" male group. In Choral Director Valerie Davidson's first year at Atkins, her group won the state championship at the annual NCASA A Cappella competition. The next year brought other awards, such as Best Male Soloist and Best Vocal Percussion, and the group finished as state champion runner-up.
A Cappella tryouts are in the spring of each year for this student-led group, and students DO need to be in a Chorus class to be eligible.
Practices are Thursdays after school from 3:45-4:45.
