SING! Rocks the House featuring international vocal groups Rockapella and The House Jacks, May 25, 2018. 8.00pm

SING! In Concert presents SING! Rocks the House featuring international vocal groups Rockapella and The House Jacks,

Rockapella has become one of the world’s most sophisticated, lasting, and imitated vocal groups around today. Since they first achieved national television fame on PBS’s Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?, they’ve toured the globe and provided a funky powerful soundtrack to several generations of vocal music fans, while keeping it all fresh along the way. With buckets of catchy original pop songs, and complete contemporary revisions of sparkling Motown, pop, and soul classics, this group has always been the one to watch. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more influential group.

The House Jacks instantly redefined the vocal music genre. Combining their virtuosic harmonies with spectacular stagecraft, these five world-class performers continue to push the boundaries of the human voice with jaw-dropping performances. The House Jacks have been seen or heard on NFL Monday Night Football, NBC’s The Sing-Off, Chili’s and Schlotzsky’s advertising campaigns, Guitar Hero and Karaoke Revolution video game franchises. They have performed at the many of the most prestigious venues in the US as well as over 30 European tours and international appearances in France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Brazil, Sri Lanka, the UK and more!

O Canada: Twentysomething, May 26, 2018, 8pm

Posted on: December 31st, 2017 by SingToronto No Comments

SING! In Concert presents O Canada: Twentysomething – celebrating the 20th anniversary of three of Canada’s most influential and highly-celebrated a cappella groups: Toronto Northern Lights Chorus, Cadence and Retrocity.

Since forming over 20 years ago, the Northern Lights have redefined Barbershop. In their second International Competition – after just two years in existence, TNL came fifth in the world. Since that time, they have finished top five in every International appearance, including a run of five straight
second place finishes, and a world championship in 2013.
They have appeared on stage with Gordon Lightfoot, The Kingsingers, Cadence and Countermeasure and have performed on stages in Canada, the US, Germany, England, Holland and China. They have also previously won the CBC Choral Competition. Blending the traditions of Barbershop with the excitement of modern a capella, TNL shatters expectations of boater hats and pinstripes by presenting a wide mix of music from all eras, and an “inyour-face” sound and performance style that has energized audiences around the world.

Based in Toronto, Cadence quartet has been wowing audiences across the country and around the world at sold-out jazz clubs and concert halls, music festivals, schools, and corporate functions. Cadence brings an infectious energy and uncanny verve to every song they sing.

For pure acappellatude, look no further than Retrocity. Eight totally rad singers electric boogaloo their way through your favourite tunes from the 80s and beyond. Righteous guitar riffs, sensual sax solos, dope drum beats and sizzling synths… all performed with the human voice. From Sting to Salt-N-Pepa, nobody delivers a blast of tubular tuneage like Retrocity.
