04/12/2012

CORVALLIS, Ore. – The German a cappella ensemble Vocaldente will visit Oregon State University on Monday, April 30, for a free workshop in the Memorial Union Journey Room. The group will preview its concert repertoire, explain some of its techniques, and perform a few songs.

That same night in downtown Corvallis, Vocaldente will present a free concert at the Whiteside Theatre at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Vocaldente performs popular music from the past 10 decades in classical a cappella style, without microphones but with entertaining choreography. Its repertoire covers songs of every decade, including 1920s Charleston tunes, popular German styles from the 1950s, 1970s disco and recent pop songs and chart hits.

The event is organized by the German program at OSU, supported by the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany in San Francisco, the School of Language, Culture and Society at OSU, the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs at OSU, and the Whiteside Theatre.
