Just one night after Jeffrey Siegel dazzled Folsom spectators Friday night, Capella sensation Voctave takes the stage tonight, Mar. 25 at the Harris Center for the Arts. According to the latest report from the box office, a limited number of tickets are still available.
A cappella sensation, Voctave has had over 150 million social media views of their videos, and their latest album, The Spirit of the Season, Deluxe Edition, reached No. 6 on the Billboard charts.
Their previous album, The Corner of Broadway & Main Street Vol. 2, debuted at number 3 on the iTunes charts. Formed in 2015 by producer and arranger Jamey Ray when he selected singers from Voices of Liberty, an a cappella group that performs in Disney’s Epcot, to sing through his first arrangement.
As Ray gained more experience, the pieces improved and so did the group’s ratings. Ultimately, it was a recording of Voctave’s “Disney Love” medley with Pentatonix singer Kirstin Maldonado that sent the group to the top of the charts.
“We put that video out, it went viral and from that point on, it just kind exploded each time we posted,” says Ray. “These performances have become more and more popular on social media, and that is how Voctave turned into what it is today.”
With that Disney medley, Voctave not only found its spark, but its niche. Between Facebook and YouTube, the Disney-themed performances have accumulated over 100 million views.
“We have people with infants who write us to tell how much even they love our music, but then we also have people in their teens, 20-somethings and up from there who love it, too,” Ray said in a Chautauquan Daily interview. “Everyone at every age loves Disney. It is not like that when we do musical theater; that scope is a lot narrower.”
Hailing from Central Florida, the eleven members of Voctave have performed across the globe and appear on countless recordings. The group has performed with Grammy, Dove and American Music Award recipients including Sandi Patty, Pentatonix’s Kirstin Maldonado, Mark Lowry, David Phelps, and Jody McBrayer.
Voctave’s eight albums are digitally available on all platforms. The group performed in Campbell Friday night following a tour stop in Edmonds, Washington Thursday night.
The March 25 performance begins at 8:00 p.m. Tickets start at $51. For seating chart and to purchase tickets click HERE or visit www.harriscenter.net. Tickets may be purchased at the ticket office two hours prior to any performance. The Harris Center for the Arts is Folsom’s premier entertainment venue and is located at 10 College Parkway, Folsom, California 95630.
