Idaho Falls Youth Arts Centre is pleased to present VOCAL POINT Brigham Young University’s premiere 9-man a cappella ensemble. Directed by McKay Crockett, Vocal Point wows audiences everywhere with their vocal firepower, innovative arrangments, and remarkable vocal percussion. Vocal Point was founded in 1991 by two students at Brigham Young University. Dave Boyce and Bob Ahlander first heard the contemporary a cappella sound during a visit to the eastern U.S., where it had already grown to considerable popularity at colleges throughout the east. Seeking to bring that sound westward, Dave and Bob recruited Jill Petersen-Lex to serve as the group’s first Artistic Director. The three held auditions in fall 1991. After the members were selected and began singing, the nine-man group became an instant hit on campus, selling out its very first concert. The group made its first recording (“If Rocks Could Sing”) and went on its first tour that same year.

 

Their most notable Vocal Point’s performance was on NBC’s The Sing-Off, where the 2010-2011 group competed against 15 other A cappella groups in Los Angeles before a panel of celebrity judges. After a wildly popular run on the show in which the group produced all their own arrangements (rather than relying on the show’s in-house music producers), Vocal Point made it to the top 5 and won critical acclaim for their performances. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the powerhouse of talent.
