Straight No Chaser performs in front of sell out crowd
Worth the wait! Performing nearly six months after their original concert
date was postponed due to weather related issues, the male a capella
group “Straight No Chaser” thrilled the audience in a sold-out
Robert Brown Theatre Wednesday night with their breath taking performances.
“As disappointed as I was in December when they called and said they couldn’t make it to Ark City, I was as happy last night with their performance,” Shannon Massey, director of alumni and endowment at Cowley College said. “It was well worth the wait. What great talent and amazing voices. I hope everyone enjoyed the concert as much as I did.”
The captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music made the evening one to remember as they performed several different genres of music. The group also incorporated a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor.
Massey said several people approached her after the concert stating how much they enjoyed the performance and asked if the college could bring the group back again in the near future.
“I want to thank Dr. Pat (McAtee) for allowing us the opportunity to bring in such great talent,” Massey said. “I am not sure what to do next year to top last night.”
