NORWICH – Following a sold out appearance that brought the entire audience to its feet in early 2011, the vocal group m-pact returns to the Chenango County Council of the Arts in Norwich on Friday, May 11 at 7 p.m.
Their award winning sound incorporates the smooth soul of Stevie Wonder, the percussive power of Stomp, the funk and drive of Earth, Wind, & Fire, the hip licks of Take 6, and the brass bite of the Harry Connick Jr. Big Band, all created by the human voice alone.
Hailed “one of the best pop-jazz vocal groups in the world” by the San Francisco Chronicle, m-pact is respected worldwide as a cutting edge trailblazer in the realm of vocal music. Emerging from an age of auto-tune and overproduction, this Los Angeles-based sextet has cultivated a new generation of ears hungry for the fresh, raw power of nature’s “first instrument” - the human voice.
This performance by m-pact is sponsored by Preferred Mutual Insurance Company. Tickets range in price from $20 to $25 with discounts for seniors and members of the Arts Council. Youth 18 and under are always $10. For reservations call 336-ARTS(2787) or go to chenangoarts.org. The Arts Council is located at 27 West Main St., Norwich.
A special prix fixe menu is available before every Arts Council performance at the Bohemian Moon in Norwich, as well as extended hours following the performance.
