Founded in August of 2012, VirtuOSO is the premier pop/a cappella/vocal jazz ensemble at Baylor. Devoted to creativity, variety, and excellence, this group performs arrangements ranging from four to fourteen parts, most written in-house by students, graduates, or their director, supplying every component using only their voices. The ensemble performs during the Family Weekend Concert, and also hosts fall and spring concerts, album release shows, and performs for university and community events. They have recorded two albums, a music video, and will release a virtual reality music video in Fall of 2017. VirtuOSO has recently been in national and international spotlight, placing 4th in ICCA National Finals in 2015, 2nd place in VoiceJAM in 2016, guest appearances in Taitung, Taiwan at the Vocal Asia Festival in 2016, and winners of the ICCA Southwest Quarterfinals in 2017.
