Viral BYU a cappella group Noteworthy will take center stage in concert Saturday, Nov. 19, at 7:30 p.m., in the de Jong Concert Hall of the Harris Fine Arts Center.
Tickets are $10-12 and can be purchased in person at the BYU Ticket Office in the Harris Fine Arts Center or Marriott Center, by phone at 801-422- 2981 or online at byuarts.com.
Noteworthy, though recently added to BYU’s Performing Arts Management portfolio, comes with a ten-year history and an amazing resume. Noteworthy’s nine female singers deliver a power-packed concert that combines vocal percussion, humor and a tight harmony. The group’s varied repertoire includes rock, pop, country, jazz, R&B, spiritual and other musical styles.
"There's nothing like Noteworthy anywhere else at BYU—or anywhere else—period. The chance to work with such talented, committed ladies to make such exciting, inspiring music is one I cherish,” said Keith Evans, director of Noteworthy and former Vocal Point member. “These days, young women can so easily find female role models who don’t inspire and uplift. That is what makes it a privilege to direct an ensemble of women who are honest, loyal and virtuous, as well as bright, talented and fun."
The performers take songs and rearrange them to deliver a new rendition with just their mouths. They mimic complex instrumentation, hold a perfect pitch, and give a beautiful harmony. Noteworthy is full of class and charm. All nine members are carefully selected through competitive auditions and they are experts at displaying musical ability, creativity and stage experience—resulting in original, skillful and spirited performances.
Noteworthy has appeared on NBC’s hit television show The Sing-Off and was crowned International Championship of Collegiate a cappella champions in 2007. In October 2015, their music video “Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)” went viral two weeks after its release and currently has more than 17 million views.
