Street Corner Symphony @ Findlay High School
Sep 20 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

StreetCornerSymphonyHear one-of-a-kind performances of your favorite pop tunes as The Arts Partnership presents Street Corner Symphony at 3 pm, Sunday, September 20 at Findlay High School.

Street Corner Symphony are an a cappella group based out of Nashville, Tennessee, founded on 28 May 2010 to compete in NBC’s all-vocal competition, The Sing-Off. They became internationally known in 2010 when they became runners up on the show’s second season. These southern gents quickly won over Sing-Off judges Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), Shawn Stockman (Boyz II Men), and Nicole Scherzinger (The Pussycat Dolls), and–most importantly–millions of NBC primetime viewers after demonstrating their unique, laid-back-yet-dynamic style of a cappella. Since their success on The Sing-Off, Street Corner Symphony has made their mark on the music world, recording albums, providing clinics for schools, giving benefits for cancer, performing across the country and around the world, and even working with major artists including Ben Folds, Alison Krauss, and Take 6’s Claude McKnight.

The six performing members of the group include three brothers: Jeremy, Jonathan, and Richie Lister, along with Adam Chance, Mark McLemore and Kurt Zimmerman. Four of the six guys are the sons of ministers, which contributes to their natural ears for harmony as well as their playful sense of mischief, and all six of them have expertise in a wide variety of styles. This allows Street Corner Symphony to seamlessly move between most styles of music, feeling at home in all of them. Their repertoire covers a wide range, from gospel and barbershop to rock and pop, appealing to the young and old alike.

Tifin University's "UP IN THE AIR"

Tiffin University’s “UP IN THE AIR”

Opening for Street Corner Symphony is Tiffin University’s a cappella group “UP IN THE AIR.” UP IN THE AIR was among the first vocal groups of its kind in the Midwest, performing high-energy commercial music one-on-a-part and one-on-a-mic with vocal bass and beatbox — a generation before it was the norm for collegiate a cappella groups.  UP IN THE AIR has inspired the founding of dozens of collegiate and high school ensembles, and boasts a number of successful professional singers, producers and songwriters as alums.

This performance is in conjunction with the two School Day Performances that will be offered to area schools on Monday,
