Vocal Percussionist Adam Rupp '04 and Home Free in Concert

The award-winning a cappella sensation, Home Free, returns to Gustavus’ Jussi Björling Recital Hall for a special fund-raising concert Sunday, August 28. The concert, a benefit sponsored by First Lutheran Church of St. Peter, begins at 3:00 p.m. and is open to the public. Tickets for the benefit are available at the church and will be on sale at the door prior to the concert.

Conceived in Mankato, Home Free features Mankato natives and Gustavus alumni, Chris Rupp  ’02 and Adam Rupp ’04 along with Mankatoan Matt Atwood.

Home Free is a distinctive combination of comedy and music featuring five male vocalists with extensive theatrical and musical training. With a genre of music that covers an expansive mix of pop, jazz, classical and country, all songs are  performed with only the human voice and microphones, resulting in a truly unique and incredible sound and each performance showcases a new, animated, and electrifying experience that draws audiences in, and leaves them amazed.

With four recordings on the market (From the Top, Kickin’ It Old School, and two Christmas cds) and an extensive touring and performance schedule, Home Free is quickly gaining the attention of the music public tuned in to the sound of five a capella voices. The combined talents of Rob Lundquist, Chris Rupp, Matt Atwood, Troy Horne and Adam Rupp create a warm and inviting tone and quality that masks the difficulty of “making it all come together.”

Home Free recently took first place in the Harmony Sweepstakes Chicago Regional and has performed for a diverse and extensive clientele, ranging from the Minnesota Vikings to Fortune 500 companies, Celebrity and Norwegian Cruise Lines, Allied Concert touring services, the Dutton Family from America’s Got Talent and many, many more. In addition to touring and performing, it devotes time to educating and encouraging music in the public schools through innovative workshops and concert fundraising. To date, its programs have already raised tens of thousands of dollars for schools in Minnesota through Music in Our Schools, a creation of Matt Atwood.

To support a good cause and enjoy a wonderful afternoon of music, join us on the Gustavus campus for Mankato’s Home Free in concert, Sunday, August 28, beginning at 3:00 p.m. in Jussi Björling Recital Hall. Tickets are available at the door.

Invite your friends and enjoy Mankato’s award-winning Home Free in concert.
