The Illinois Rip Chords NEW CD!

The Illinois Rip Chords are an all-female, 15 member a cappella group hailing from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Founded in 1992, the Rip Chords can be seen performing at shows across campus and the Midwest. They compete in the International Comepetition of Collegiate A Cappella annually, and have advanced to semi-finals several times in the last decade. With their edgy sound, kickin' choreo, and unyielding love for music and performing, this group of women is sure to entertain any audience! We are in the midst of recording a brand new CD, but we need your help to fund the recording expenses! We are hoping to release the CD this spring. We truly appreciate any and all support! Unfortunately, the final cost for the whole album will be about a $10,000 production. So please, help us reach our GoFundMe goal of $2,250 in order to create the best cd experience possible! 

Thank you so much for all your support in advance!

Your money will contribute to: recording fees, mixing, editing, producer expenses, mastering, overall distribution, and licensing.
