VOCALOSITY: The Aca-Perfect Concert Experience

Wednesday, March 2, 7:30 p.m.

From the creative mind of artistic producer Deke Sharon (Pitch Perfect, The Sing-Off) comes a concert event that takes a cappella to a whole new level! This fast-paced production features 12 dynamic voices singing some of today’s chart-topping hits in brand-new arrangements. No genre of music is off limits in the world of a cappella and VOCALOSITY will explore them all – from tenth century Gregorian chant and classic choral, to barber shop quartet and bouncing doo-wop all the way to The Beatles and Bruno Mars. Combine that with movement and choreography from Sean Curran (Stomp original cast member) and you have an exhilarating evening of song unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
