With four weekly rehearsals, weekly sectional practices, and countless performances, music is the heart of R20. We do what we love and love what we do. To consumate this group love affair, we record new songs twice yearly. Subsequently, we compile and release albums about every 3 years.

Rehearsals are run by our student music director, who is elected by the group yearly. The music director not only runs rehearsals, but also oversees the production of our CDs and sings as full member of the group. For questions concerning music and performance, you can contact our current music director, Becca Singer.
