Canada’s premier vocal group Cadence will perform at the Fredericton Playhouse on Saturday, May 5 at 7:30 p.m., marking the final performance in the 2017-18 Spotlight Series.
Cadence has been wowing audiences across Canada and around the world for nearly 20 years. The members of this a cappella quartet bring an infectious energy and uncanny verve to every song they sing, whether it’s a classic song by Joni Mitchell, an old bebop standard, or a cheeky arrangement of a 1980s hit. Every song contains all the richness of a full band, but performed using just four voices.
Cadence’s live shows are always a hit, featuring a hypnotic blend of complex harmonies, intricate arrangements, vocal dexterity and just plain fun. On-stage antics and audience participation are par for the course, but so is a mesmerizing display of musical genius. What these boys can do with their voices needs to be heard to be believed.
In addition to this performance, the Playhouse is pleased to offer an Experience More! Performance Workshop on Sunday, May 6 at 1 p.m. at the Playhouse. Members of Cadence will lead this interactive, hands-on class, focusing on stage presence, instrumental imitation and vocal percussion. The workshop is open to anyone age 13 and up, and pre-registration is required by contacting the box office.
Tickets for Cadence are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office by calling 458-8344 or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
