A Rockapella Christmas Comes to the State Theatre with a Chance for an A Cappella Group to be the Opening Act

Nov 10th, 2015Press Release from State Theatre Center for the Arts

They’ve become one of the world’s most sophisticated, lasting, and imitated vocal groups around today. Since the early ’90’s when they first achieved national television fame on PBS’s Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego?, Rockapella has toured the globe and provided a funky powerful soundtrack to several generations of vocal music fans, while keeping it all fresh along the way. The group brings their unique sound to the State Theatre for a Christmas Concert on December 10.

Show time is 7 PM.  Tickets are $30 and $15 for students and can be purchased by visiting the State Theatre Box Office, 453 Northampton Street, Easton, by calling 1-800-999-STATE, 610-252-3132 or online at www.statetheatre.org. Sponsored by 69 WFMZ-TV and wfmz.com.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more influential group out there in this new era of network television a cappella shows like NBC’s The Sing-Off, movies like Pitch Perfect, and innumerable college vocal groups that own the corner of cool on campuses everywhere. With buckets of catchy original pop songs, and complete contemporary revisions of sparkling Motown, pop, and soul classics, Rockapella has always been the one to watch. ”Often imitated – never duplicated” applies here. Now they’re better than ever!

The current Rockapella line-up features Scott Leonard (since 1991, High Tenor), Jeff Thacher (1993, Vocal Percussionist), Steven Dorian (2010, Tenor), Calvin Jones (2013, Tenor), and Ryan Chappelle (2015, Bass). This line-up marks a new generation of Rockapella, who remain keenly focused on musical excellence. Rockapella has indeed proven that forming original pop & soul magic onstage is what sets them apart.
