Wheeler's a cappella group, The 18 Wheelers, are one of two RI groups selected for WGBH's newest original series, SING THAT THING.  Twenty-four amateur singing groups from across southern New England – including nine high schools groups, six collegiate choirs and nine community choruses –were selected from a field of more than 50 groups to perform during the inaugural season of Sing That Thing!, WGBH Boston’s new local series. The series, hosted by Boston Children’s Chorus artistic director Anthony Trecek-King, begins taping later this month and premieres on WGBH 2 on Friday, April 17 at 8:30pm. Preliminary round tapings took place in early February. The series finale will be taped in front of a studio audience in May.  Learn more at WGBH.org/SingThatThing.
