About The Event

Accent is composed of six singers from five countries forming one vocal supergroup.

In the increasingly popular world of a cappella singing groups, Accent has carved out its own niche. Since forming in 2011, the group has released five albums; performed at the London A Cappella Festival; played dates across Europe, North America, and Asia; and was featured in two sold-out Christmas shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Accent’s singular blend and arrangements have been acclaimed by a cappella devotees and fellow musicians alike, including Cedric Dent of TAKE 6 and Clark Burroughs of the Hi-Lo’s. The ensemble’s lush sound is embellished by its deep and innate musicality. As Alan Paul of the Manhattan Transfer said, “You guys carry on the vocal group legacy.”

This evening’s performance will feature selections from the Accent discography, including holiday favorites from the ensemble’s latest release, Christmas All the Way.
