March 12, 2017 @ 4pm - No Strings A Cappella
No Strings A Cappella was formed in August of 2013. Most of the singers were part of the Zephyr Vocal Ensemble and so have been singing together for years. When the Zephyr V.E. went on a hiatus from performing in summer of 2013, these singers decided to form a new group with a greater emphasis on performing a mixed repertoire of popular and jazz as well as classical music, and to do so not only on the concert stage but also in less formal settings. We want to reach more people in more places with our unique music.
