Disney's highly acclaimed a cappella group, DCappella comes to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Friday, Feb. 15, 2019 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $39-$89.
DCappella's co-creator, music director, arranger, and producer is Deke Sharon ("the father of contemporary a cappella," according to Entertainment Weekly), whose credits include the Pitch Perfect franchise and Straight No Chaser.
The DCappella tour features a contemporary production of new Deke Sharon arrangements of Disney classic and modern hits, bringing to life a truly unique a cappella experience. Skincare company, H2O+ Beauty is the co-sponsor of the national tour.
DCappella's debut album includes an eclectic mix of tracks, breathing new life into timeless songs such as "You'll Be in My Heart" and "A Whole New World" to modern day classics "Let It Go/Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" and "Remember Me."
Known for their reimagined classics from the Disney songbook and beyond, the seven dynamic voices that make up DCappella are Sojourner Brown [alto], Orlando Dixon [baritone/"The Voice"], Antonio Fernandez [vocal percussion], Morgan Keene [soprano/"Newsies"], Shelley Regner [mezzo/"Pitch Perfect" films], Joe Santoni [bass], and RJ Woessner [tenor]. The group debuted last Spring with a TV debut on American Idol during "Disney Night," performing classics from The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and Aladdin. That same week, they graced one of Hollywood's most hallowed stages to open Disney's Beauty and the Beast Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Most recently, they recorded four songs on the digital version of the Incredibles 2 original motion picture soundtrack.
