YCP Rhapsody, a local a cappella group from York College of Pennsylvania, was crowned the Cultural Alliance of York County’s YorVoice 2016 Champion at our event on Friday, March 18, 2016 at the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center. The group of 19 students from York College of Pennsylvania performed a rendition of Imagine Dragons’ Radioactive to more than 500 audience members.
Chris Betzler, president of YCP Rhapsody and a senior accounting major, described winning as “an amazing experience he will never forget. YCP Rhapsody is ecstatic about being named the 2016 YorVoice Champions, and we look forward to being part of the event again next year.”
Judges crowned Mylea Thompson, who performed “Ebben? Ne andrò lontana” from the opera “La Wally” composed by Alfredo Catalani, the 2016 YorVoice Runner-Up.
