Vocal Point returns to Monticello
Blue Mountain Entertainment joyfully presents Vocal Point, the premiere pop a cappella ensemble, in a return engagement on Saturday, October 25, at 7 p.m. in the Monticello High School Auditorium.
Percussion without drums. A rhythm section without a bass. The only instruments on stage belong to the nine voices of this nationally renowned a cappella group.
Hailing from Brigham Young University in Provo, UT, Vocal Point gives a stunning, high-energy performance that won it the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) and a faithful following throughout the world.
In 2011, Vocal Point appeared on NBC’s hit television show, “The Sing-Off,” where after competing weekly the group finally placed in the top five groups of this national a cappella competition.
Vocal Point combines harmony, humor, and remarkable vocal percussion into a thrilling showcase. Members are selected for their musical ability, creativity, and stage presence.
With a varied repertoire, Vocal Point has it all: rock, pop, country, jazz, and rhythm and blues. The group entertains audiences of all ages, delivering a crowd-pleasing rendition complete with complex instrumentation done only with voices.
“That’s about the most professional group at the collegiate level anywhere,” says Deke Sharon, founder of the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America (CASA) and Vocal Producer of The Sing Off.
Vocal Point has performed across the United States, traveling from Washington, DC to Alaska, as well as several stops in between. In February 2002 the group performed at nearly every major venue for the Salt Lake Winter Olympic Games.
In March 2011 the group released its eighth album, titled Back in Blue, featuring recordings from the 2007-2011 years of Vocal Point. In October 2012, the group released its first all-hymn album, titled Lead Thou Me On.
Most recently, the group released Spectrum, rearranging popular tunes including Sara Bareilles’s “Brave” and a Newsies medley. The music videos were featured on Good Morning America and the Grammys. In 2013, Vocal Point began a YouTube channel which now has 50,000 subscribers and over three million views.
Vocal Point is currently directed by McKay Crockett, a former member of Vocal Point.
