James Gilchrist, Class of 2016
2019 Best of Collegiate a Capella album soloist

James was thrilled to be notified in the spring that “Scared to be Lonely” had been selected by Varsity Vocals for the 2019 BOCA album. James is the soloist in “Scared to be Lonely”, the lead song of Juxtaposition’s EP Faking It. “Because of the great musical training and experience I had at Trinity under the lead of Mrs. Koth and other fantastic music teachers, I decided to audition for Juxtaposition, an all-male a cappella group, when I got to Virginia Tech.” During his freshman year, James realized music is what he really loves and is double majoring in Music Technology and Music Composition. James also sings with the Virginia Tech Chamber Singers, is active in Cru, and sometimes sings and plays guitar on the worship team at his church. “Because I went to Trinity for 12 years, I hoped to find a Christian community when I got to Virginia Tech. The support of Cru and church has really helped me to be a witness for Christ with my other friends.”
