Long before the hit television program GLEE! created a national obsession with a cappella singing, the vocals-only, five-member ensemble Rockapella was entertaining audiences around the world with their full-band sound. Rockapella will perform at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall on Thursday, July 7, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. Editor’s Note: The BSO will not be performing on this program.
Rockapella first gained fame on the popular children’s TV show “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” as the voices behind the familiar theme song and the show’s resident comedy troupe and vocal house band. Known for their full-band sound, the five-man band has changed members over its more than 20 year existence, and currently features High Tenor Scott Leonard, Vocal Percussionist Jeff Thatcher, Bass George Baldi III, Tenor John K. Brown and Tenor Steven Dorian.
