SOVOSO’S RHYTHMIC STYLINGS COME TO THE FINE ARTS CENTER
LA CROSSE, Wis.—The highly visual and imaginative a cappella group SoVoSo will be performing at the Viterbo Fine Arts Center Main Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m.
SoVoSo, which means from the soul to the voice to the song, is a creative a cappella sextet that sings a compelling mix of jazz, R&B, gospel, pop, and improvisational music. The group’s trademark is an exceptional ability to transform themselves into a broad-ranging vocal orchestra, highlighting their repertoire with improvisational music, storytelling, and on-stage character work. SoVoSo recently won first prize at the National Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival. The group was originally assembled in 1986 by renowned vocalist Bobby McFerrin. Members of SoVoSo performed with McFerrin in his a cappella group Voicestra until 1993. In 1997, their album "SoVoSo: World Jazz A Cappella" was named Best Studio Album by the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards.
SoVoSo’s performance is part of the Viterbo NexStar Season and is sponsored by TCI: Architects, Engineers, and Contractors. It is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
Tickets for SoVoSo are $21 and $15. To order tickets, please contact the Viterbo Fine Arts Center Box Office at 608-796-3100.
