The RIT Brick City Singers, 2009-2010.

The Brick City Singers (abbreviation: BCS) is one of RIT's performing a cappella groups. Members often perform in either Hawaiian shirts or boldly-colored collared shirts. BCS most often performs at events like RIT Singers concerts, Imagine RIT, and other gigs around campus.

Started in 1999, BCS has been active as a subset of RIT Singers, performing both contemporary as well as classic style songs. Historically, members have been known to perform professional arrangements, as well as use their talents to arrange their own songs for the group.

BCS has been present in the 2004 and 2010 International Championship of A Cappella Quarterfinals. They have also caught the attention of (and performed for) several nonprofit organizations around the city of Rochester.

Night of A Cappella (NOAC)

Each spring, usually in late March, the Brick City Singers hold their only annual concert at Ingle Auditorium - the Night of A Cappella (or NOAC).

One of the components of NOAC is a video: an acted-out parody movie, projected onto a large screen. Two to three guest groups, invited from around the country, perform their sets on stage as well. Lastly, BCS performs all of their new songs for the year as well as a few crowd favorites.
