Breakwater Earns 3 CARA Nominations and Lands Track on 2024 BOHSA Album

Breakwater, Severn’s award-winning a cappella group, recently earned national recognition from two organizations.
First, a track from the group’s latest EP, titled Breathe was selected for inclusion on the 2024 Best of High School A Cappella (BOHSA) album. This annual compilation from Varsity Vocals has recognized the best high school a cappella recordings nationwide for over 20 years. “Alive” is the penultimate track on the album, alongside 18 other outstanding high school a cappella tracks.
