November CCA shows to include The King’s Singers, a new take on a cappella

The Collins Center for the Arts at the University of Maine is offering a variety of performances throughout the 2017–18 season.

November events will include two a capella groups, one British and one with a more international character.

The King’s Singers, a British a cappella ensemble, will perform at 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5. Winner of an Emmy and two Grammys, the group is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Beatboxing and a cappella come together in “Gobsmacked!” which will be performed at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16.

Originating in the U.K., “Gobsmacked!” includes world champion beatboxer Ball-Zee and various international vocalists, and explores different types of vocal art ranging from more traditional a cappella to modern live track looping.
