Hey!  We're Forte, Centerville High School's contemporary a cappella group.  We've been singing a cappella for only two years, but it's been an amazing journey so far! 

Last year we attended the Kettering A Cappella Festival, traveled to Chicago, Illinois to compete at ICHSA, released our first CD, put on several concerts, and learned so much along the way.  This year, we attended the Kettering A Cappella Festival again, released our second CD, performed in numerous venues, met Sonos, and worked with Christopher Diaz, among other things.  

Our upcoming schedule includes competing at ICHSA in Clarkston, Michigan, traveling to Florida with our school's other choirs to perform at Disney, performing at Voices in Harmony in Lexington, Kentucky, and with your help, producing our very own CD of original songs!  We plan to hire some of the biggest names in the business to transform our original songs into a cappella arrangements for you to listen to and enjoy. All of our original songs will be written and composed by students in this years group.  

We are unbelievably excited to share our compositions with you, but we need your support in order to realize our dream.  Any support provided is greatly appreciated!  Thank you :)
