Pennharmonics CD Release Show
The Pennharmonics, Penn State’s premier co-ed a Capella group, or, as they have dubbed themselves, the sexiest a Capella group in the universe, is having a concert Saturday evening at 8 p.m. in 105 Forum. This concert marks the release of their brand new studio album, “Black And Silver.”
“It’s like Wiz Khalifa meets Glee, but not as eccentric and a little less weed,” Pennharmonics Director Ali Zambanini joked.
Zambanini described the group’s second studio album as a “crazy, eclectic mix.” The song’s genres include “Penn” songs like “Forgiven” by Alanis Morissette, classic rock like “Hey Jude” by The Beatles, indie like “The Chain” by Ingrid Michaelson, and pop hits like “Battlefield” by Jordin Sparks.
Tickets for the concert will be $3 for students and $4.99 for adults (with an optional one cent donation). CDs will be available for purchase at the cost of $10. However, if you purchase the album at the entrance, it will only cost $12 total (only applies to students).
The night’s performance will feature several songs from the CD and some songs from their winter concert last December, as well as two brand new compositions, including “Fallin’” by Alicia Keys. The concert also marks the premier of the group’s five new members.
“It is totally different to interact with them in a performance setting than in comparison to a practice,” Zambanini said. “I’m interested to see how they react to the experience.”
If you enjoy novel renditions of your favorite radio hits riddled with tight harmonies, then this album and concert are for you.
“You’ll have a great time,” Zambanini said. “There’s a little bit of everything for everyone.”
