PENTATONIX to Judge UConn's A Cappella Sing-Off, Perform During Family Weekend, 9/27-28
Pentatonix, PTX for short and named after the five-note musical scale, creatively weave their unaccompanied art form that never leaves the listener hungry for non-human instrumentation. Nothing is missing. Their musical diversity and sonic proof that they are perfect far beyond the arena of pitch is apparent in their debut EP - PTX Volume 1, which made its debut at No. 14 on Billboard's Top 200. It features original works, "The Baddest Girl" by Hoying and group producer Ben Bram, and "Show You How To Love," by Kaplan and Olusola. Their PTXmas ranked No. 10 on the iTunes Holiday chart. Their latest EP is poised for release this month, and they will embark on a European tour this November.
Pentatonix will judge an a cappella sing-off with UConn campus and selected eastern Connecticut high school divisions on Friday, Sept. 27, at 7:30 p.m. at Jorgensen. The event will be free and open to the public.
