FARMINGTON – Fans of the current craze of pop-rock a cappella performance will enjoy a festive collaboration of three talented groups 7 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 24 at Nordica Auditorium of Merrill Hall on the UMF campus.

The Mt. Blue Voices

A special concert featuring three talented youthful groups, to include the Brown University “Chattertocks,” the University of Maine at Farmington Clefnotes, and the Mount Blue High School Mt. Blue Voices.

Farmington is part of the Chattertocks’ January East Coast Tour itinerary due to member Elisabeth Stancioff’s roots with the Mt. Blue Voices.

The Chattertocks are Brown University’s oldest all-female a cappella group, dating back to 1951, and perform widely. Mt. Blue Voices, meanwhile, have been performing statewide and at Disney World roughly bi-annually since 1995. UMF’s Clefnotes, formerly known as Sole Expression, are the newest group, but have built a strong fan base on campus over the past few years.

The collaboration promises to be lively and spontaneous. A cappella performance of contemporary hits is garnering public attention and enthusiasm, as reflected in the recent TV competition called “Sing-Off,” in which a college group was a strong contender in the final round.

Donations will be requested at the door, as all three groups rely on fund raising to cover expenses. FMI call 778-3513.
