Treat yourself to an evening of uniquely-American music right here in Kuna tonight
The KPAC Events Council is pleased to present Northwest Vocal Project at the Kuna Performing Arts Center on tonight, Friday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m.
Known as "Seattle's Vocal Fraternity", NVP is an ever-growing group of men who have made it their mission to instill in their audiences a love for the truly American art form of Barbershop music. Performing gospel and jazz, traditional barbershop and contemporary, NVP has won numerous awards since their inception in 2007. Most recently they placed 1st at the International Youth Chorus Festival held in Las Vegas this past January. You can listen to a sampling of their music online at http://www.barbershop.org/2009-northwest-vocal-project.html.
Drew Osterhout, the NVP's founder, hopes to see large numbers of high school and middle school students in attendance at the concert. Drew explains, "If they think traditional barbershop is old fashioned, their minds will be changed after watching our performance." Patrons will be pleased to know that NVP has even invited a few standout youth quartets to share the stage with them!
NVP showcases intricate a cappella arrangements that will impress and inspire. They blend youthful energy and professional precision to create a unique and unforgettable performance.
Come see and hear for yourself the refreshing sound and thoroughly entertaining program of the Northwest Vocal Project.
The KPAC Events Council is confident that families will value the wholesome entertainment this concert provides them. "We wanted to keep the ticket price as low as we could and still be able to cover the expenses of pulling off a big event such as this. Getting about 30 young men from Seattle to Kuna is no small feat!" explains Marci Durrant, KPAC Events Council President. For about the price of a movie, she believes that NVP's program will remain in your memory far longer than the latest film productions. "We are so grateful to Richard Lapp and the Boise Chordsmen for their assistance with housing and transportation for the Northwest Vocal Project members. We are thrilled to have their support of our efforts in bringing this talented group of young men to Kuna."
