The ConChords

A little more than a year ago, the ConChords, originally from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in the UK, were on top of the world, having secured a win of the 2020 UK ICCA semifinals and the right to compete on the stage at finals in New York. Then the pandemic hit and things came to a bit of a halt, but the group didn't stop! They recorded and released their rendition of Moanin', which was in their 2020 set. Rachael sits down with Johnny and Aitzi to talk about how that all went down, where the group is now, and what's up next!
