A cappella Concert
Thursday, January 5,
Yale University’s Bakers’ Dozen, a 13-member male a cappella vocal group, will perform a concert at the Piedmont Center for the Arts on Thursday night, January 5, at 7 p.m. as part of its West Coast tour during the holidays.
The Troubadours, Piedmont High School’s a cappella vocal ensemble, will open for the collegiate singers. Tickets are $20 at the door.
On its 2017 winter tour, the Baker’s Dozen will travel by van from the Bay Area to Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and San Diego. While in Piedmont, all members will be hosted by board members of the Piedmont Center for the Arts and friends for brief home-stays.
Yale University’s Baker’s Dozen is one of the nation's oldest and finest a cappella groups. The ensemble commands a broad repertoire of songs, ranging from traditional ballads to jazz, rock, and contemporary hits. Highlights from recent Baker's Dozen albums include original arrangements of songs by John Legend, The Temptations, The Beatles and Maroon 5. The BDs have entertained prestigious audiences at venues as varied as the White House, the United Nations, the Academy Award offices in Hollywood, and the CIA headquarters in Virginia. In the last two years, the group has sung on national television with Martha Stewart and performed the National Anthem for the L.A. Lakers, New York Yankees, and the Boston Red Sox.
