BETHEL, NY (September 28, 2015) – The Shandelee Music Festival ends its 2015 Sullivan County season by partnering with Bethel Woods Center for the Arts to present "An Afternoon of a Cappella" featuring the world-famous Princeton Nassoons.
The concert will take place at 3:00 p.m. in the Event Gallery at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Sunday, October 4, 2015.
The Princeton Nassoons was founded in 1941 as a close-harmony a cappella alternative to the University Glee Club. One of the world’s finest collegiate performance ensembles, their combination of music, comedy, and showmanship makes for a performance that listeners of all ages enjoy, with a repertoire covering a wide range of music from the 1940s to arrangements of today’s modern songs.
With over 70 years of experience and tradition, the Nassoons are Princeton University’s oldest a cappella singing group and one of the nation’s premier performance ensembles.
Three times a year the group, currently made up of 16 undergraduates, tour the world, and share their music, dance and jokes with audiences that have included three U.S. presidents, royalty, vacationers in Cancun, screaming school children in Hong Kong, and socialites in Monte Carlo. Recent tours have taken them to Brazil, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Bermuda, Mexico, Southern California and the White House, as well as Carnegie Hall.
A specialty dessert reception will take place immediately following the Bethel Woods performance.
