"Over the past few years, a cappella has grown from a stuffy Ivy League activity to a pop culture phenomenon beloved by people of all ages," said Deke Sharon, who serves as artistic director, music director and co-creator of the production.
No genre of music is off limits in the world of a cappella and VOCALOSITY covers them all – from tenth century Gregorian chant and classical choral to barber shop quartet and bouncing doo-wop all the way to an exploration of the current sound of a cappella with music from The Beatles, Bruno Mars and more. Combine that with direction and choreography from Sean Curran (Stomp original cast member) and you have an exhilarating evening of song unlike anything ever seen or heard, live on stage.
Hailed as "the father of contemporary a cappella" by Entertainment Weekly, Sharon has served as on-site music director and vocal producer for the smash hit films Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 as well as vocal producer of NBC's The Sing-Off.
Vocalosity cast: James C. Jones, Hannah Juliano, Kelli Koloszar, Cheeyang Ng, Nattalyee Randall, Tracy L.J. Robertson, Bryant Vance, Nicole Weiss, Amy Whitcomb and RJ Woessner.
