Award-winning Vocal Point to perform March 4

Brigham Young University’s nine-man a cappella ensemble Vocal Point will celebrate 15 years of performing with vocal rhythms and harmonious melodies Saturday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Tickets are $9 or $6 with BYU or student ID. To purchase tickets, call the Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 422-4322 or visit performances.byu.edu.

Vocal Point combines vocal percussion and harmony to perform music ranging from pop to country and jazz to rock. The performance will feature a variety of styles and songs, including “Spiderman,” “Sing, Sing, Sing,” “Thriller,” “It’s My Life” and “Praise to the Man.” The evening will also highlight Vocal Point alumni in attendance.

Directed by James Stevens, Vocal Point includes performers Buck Mangum, David Anderson, Jimmy Dunn, Josh Rich, Ricky Parkinson, Ryan Innes, Jordan Keith, JJ Haines and Dan Cahoon.

“Vocal Point has developed from a couple of guys trying to sing to a group performing for more than 60,000 people each year,” Stevens said. “Our mission includes spreading good news, representing BYU values and showing youth that singing can be cool.”

The group was founded in 1991 as a private venture by Bob Ahlander and Dave Boyce. Vocal Point became a BYU School of Music performing group in 1994.

Since that time, Vocal Point has become the most requested performance group at BYU, performing for more people each year than all other university-sponsored performing groups combined.

Vocal Point has earned its way twice in the past four years to the finals of the International Championships of Collegiate A Cappella, the premier competition for university-level a cappella groups in North America. The Faith Centered Music Association awarded the group three Pearl Awards for their latest CD, “Standing Room Only.”

A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
