BYU's Vocal Point brings pop style to concert Nov. 22

Vocal Point, Brigham Young University's nine-man pop a cappella group, will combine harmony, humor and remarkable vocal percussion in a performance Saturday, Nov. 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Tickets at $9 with $3 off with a BYU or student ID are available through the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 378-4322 or at www.byu.edu/hfac.

The nine voices of Vocal Point create musical possibilities beyond the capabilities of a traditional four-part quartet, and the ensemble is continually trying new musical styles. Vocal Point does not use any musical instruments; instead, they adapt a song's complex instrumentation and recreate it vocally in a style called "mouth music."

Vocal Point's varied repertoire includes rock, pop, country, jazz, and R&B. Vocal Point's members are selected from some of BYU's finest ensembles for their musical ability, creativity, and stage experience—a combination which adds up to original, skillful and spirited performances.

BYU alumni Bob Ahlander and Dave Boyce organized Vocal Point as a private venture in 1991. Less than three years later, the group joined BYU's School of Music to establish Vocal Point as a permanent tradition of contemporary a cappella at the university. Ahlander returned in 2001 to take the reins as artistic director of the group.
