Press Release From Voices of America
Excitement is high as the Voices of America chorus prepares for their annual Spring Show. A full evening of entertainment is being planned for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 17 at Wyatt Park Christian Church. The show will feature the Voices of America Chorus with special guest quartet McPhly, along with local favorite Bassline and the Maryville High School Show Choir!
Special guest McPhly brings together a wealth of music experience, McPhly consists of music veterans in the acapella vocal scene. Starting in 2008 as a side project, McPhly quickly became one of the most popular quartets in the Barbershop Harmony Society. After only five weeks together, they brought home the 2008 Rocky Mountain District championship, winning by unprecedented margins. After committing to singing together full time, McPhly has competed at the International quartet contest, placing as high as 15th in the world. An accomplished competition quartet, their repertoire is anything but ordinary. Not only are they a champion barbershop foursome, their song selections include everything from jazz, pop, gospel, country, classical and more. They are also the runner-up in the Rocky Mountain Harmony Sweepstakes, and have performed all over the country.
Bassline is a local quartet favorite. These four guys sang together in Voices of America for a few years. In spring 2011, they decided to put together a quartet and see what would happen. The first rehearsal they all knew it was meant to be. In just a couple of weeks they booked a performance, had a feature on the VOA show and an AfterGlow performance at Central Standard’s Show. They’ve been busy ever since. Bassline earned the title of Novice Champions at their first Central States District competition.
The Voices of America are excited to take the stage to present their portion of the show. This concert is the dawning of a brand new day for the Voices of America, under the direction and musical leadership of Steve Scott, the Voices of America will present their all new repertoire with many songs being arranged specifically for them. The choruses portion of the concert will feature performances of these arrangements including Love Potion #9, How Sweet It Is to Be Loved By You, and Every Little Thing She Does is Magic. Additional chorus numbers will include Ebb Tide, Happy Together, When She Loved me and more.
