Singing group first to visit this season
Tahoe Arts Project is pleased to present the a cappella quintet The Standards on Friday Oct. 7 at Caesars Tahoe.
The Standards are five brothers from Twin Falls, Idaho, all Eagle Scouts, ranging in age from 21 to 29, with an impressive five octave vocal range. They feature energetic choreography, audience interaction, comedy, the sounds of yesterday and today, and many original songs. They intertwine subtle messages about helping each other with songs like “Lean On Me,” they get the crowd singing along to “Brown Eyed Girl” and they even get the audience to mimic jungle sounds to “Lion Sleeps Tonight.” The group has the unique talent to present a wholesome message that is compassionate, but not preachy, and it’s all performed totally a cappella, without the use of any instruments. Even the drums are produced, using only their vocal chords.
The Standards will be performing in the schools Oct. 3-7 as part of Tahoe Arts Project’s arts in the schools programs. Their full show will be Friday, Oct. 7 at Caesars Circus Maximus Showroom at 7 p.m.. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children and seniors and may be purchased in advance at South Lake Tahoe Chamber, Tahoe Douglas Chamber and Caesars Tahoe. Tickets will also be available at the door. General admission seating will begin at 6 p.m. There will be a special appearance by the Whittell High School Black and White Choir and the Blue Ribbon Classical Choir. Tahoe Arts Project is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide cultural enrichment and diversity for the community through the arts and education with particular focus on the youth.
