The Voca People to Play The Grand 1894 Opera House, 10/26
On Sunday, October 26, 2014 at 3 pm, The Grand 1894 Opera House presents the Galveston debut of The Voca People. Quirky, playful, imaginative, and fun, this Israel-based eight-member "vocal theater" ensemble (chicly dressed as intergalactic aliens!) reproduces the sounds of an entire orchestra with an amazing variety of beat box vocals and a cappella singing.
Creators Lior Kalfo (comedian, producer, and artistic director) and Shai Fishman (composer, music producer, and arranger) envisioned the group as space travelers from the Planet Voca (somewhere behind the sun) where all communication is based on music and vocals. The Vocas provide a masterful performance experience as they take audiences on an eclectic journey through music history (including classical, rock, pop, blues, rap, and movie themes), quirky humor, and plenty of audience participation.
The musical and comedic talents of The Voca People have brought them legions of fans - from Off Broadway to Fringe Festivals to YouTube viewings and performance tours around the world. Their live performances draw audiences of all age groups!
The performance is sponsored in part by The Galveston Musical Club, The Trube Foundation and Texas Commission on the Arts. Tickets are from $25.
