The Persuasions with Maple Jam & The Dartmouth Aires Randolph Vermont

The Persuasions, America's foremost performers of unaccompanied pop-and-soul vocal music for well over 50 years, headline a spirited evening of a cappella music at the Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph, Vermont, on Saturday, September 30 at 7 pm.

The Autumn A Cappella concert at Chandler will also feature performances by Vermont jazz octet Maple Jam and the Dartmouth Aires, one of the nation's longest-standing collegiate vocal ensembles.

Formed in 1962 and mentored to international acclaim by the late rock music icon Frank Zappa, The Persuasions weave their voices into rich, effortless, and instinctive harmonies, served up doo-wop style with deep humility and gentle humor. Their repertoire runs the gamut from scintillating versions of soul and rhythm-&-blues classics like Sam Cooke's Chain Gang and Curtis Mayfield's People Get Ready to wondrous a cappella interpretations of classic songs by the Grateful Dead, U2, the Beatles, and Bob Dylan. The group's most recent recording - Ladies & Gentlemen, released last April - finds the vocal sextet collaborating with Canadian super-group Barenaked Ladies on a percolating set of that band's greatest hits.

Special guests Maple Jam and the Dartmouth Aires open this concert of a cappella for an autumn eve. Maple Jam specializes in close-harmony vocal arrangements of classic love songs and big-band favorites, while the Aires - founded 70 years ago as an offshoot of the Dartmouth Glee Club - feature original arrangements of pop standards and contemporary songs.
