Other concert highlights will feature many of the vocal group’s all-time a cappella favorites, as well as arrangements by award-winning saxophonist, arranger, composer, and conductor Gordon Goodwin. In addition, graduate students from the Frost School’s Arts Presenting and Live Entertainment Industries program are marketing the event.
