Ithacappella, Ithaca College’s all-male identifying a cappella group, hosted its Block 4 Concert on March 25 in Emerson Suites. The concert was dedicated as a senior send-off for their two graduating seniors in the group. A week later, Premium Blend, the college’s only all-female identifying a cappella group, hosted their Block IV Concert to commemorate its five seniors as well.
