Rensselyrics: CD Production
What do the ‘Lyrics mean to you? “Being a part of something special. It's the amazing talent of everyone in the group, how personable everyone is, and how we all have a connection even though we're all dramatically different people. The 'Lyrics, to me, are the best thing that's happened in my life so far, and I'm so happy to be a part of the whole.” - Chevy Chen '22
We are a group of students who love to sing and perform, and want to be able to share the talents of our group with the Rensselaer community and beyond! We help to show Rensselaer’s rich history with the arts, and how that relationship is still going strong after so many years.
As a group, we showcase the artistic side of a school often considered to be focused solely on STEM pursuits. An album helps to preserve this moment in history at the school by showcasing the music our students loved during their college years.
What You're Supporting
Our group intends to put your gift toward recording, mixing, producing, and publishing a new album for the group. The tracks will be sold to concert goers, family members, alumni, and the greater Rensselaer community. The money made from sales will be used to fund future projects, like more songs for our audience to enjoy! We hope that by being able to create this album we will show off the talents of the students at this school and better enrich the performing arts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. It has been four years since our last CD, and we want every group of members to get a chance to experience the production process.
Who We Are
The Rensselyrics are a co-ed a cappella group that sings mainly contemporary music arranged by its members. The 'Lyrics are the oldest a cappella group at RPI, having been born from the original RPI Glee Club (the oldest a cappella group in the country) in 1991. We now perform at many of Rensselaer's campus events and around the area, as well as hosting our own invitational each semester, to which other college groups are also invited to perform.
