50TH ANNIVERSARY CONCERT

Grains of Time, North Carolina’s oldest all-male collegiate a cappella group founded in 1968, are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. To celebrate five decades of Grains, they’re putting together a special concert where the 2018-19 Grains will take the stage alongside alumni groups dating back all the way to the original founding members.

Over the decades, the group has undergone many changes, including broadening their repertoire from choral music and ‘oldies’ to pop, country, hip-hop and R&B, as well as becoming a student-led organization. What remains the same is perhaps what best defines them – a sense of unity and brotherhood that transcends time.

Join us on December 1 to celebrate 50 years of Grains.
