Mexico’s premiere vocal ensemble, Voz en Punto, will present a Gustavus Artist Series concert on Monday, November 16 at 7:30 p.m. in Björling Recital Hall on the Gustavus Adolphus College campus. This performance is presented as part of Voz en Punto’s U.S. concert tour and the Gustavus event is one of only two concerts scheduled in Minnesota. Tickets are available online at gustavustickets.com and will also be available at the door on Monday night at 6:30 p.m.

Formed in 1989, Voz en Punto’s sound is a mix between The Real Group, Manhattan Transfer, and The King’s Singers. Their trademark is spirited and harmonic a cappella arrangements in what critics call “a feast for the senses.” Having earned the admiration of Bob Chilcott and Bobby McFerrin, Voz en Punto wows audiences not only with their technical perfection, but also their infectious, sophisticated, and humorous performance. Their YouTube performances of Besame Mucho and Tilingolingo are great examples of what audiences of Voz en Punto have come to expect.

Named in 2014 as an International Choral Federation Ambassador and currently celebrating its 25th Anniversary, Voz en Punto is the vocal ensemble with the greatest international reach in Mexican musical history. With their original vocal and scenic proposal, they have reached audiences in Germany, France, Spain, Greece, Romania, Russia, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, the Netherlands, Egypt, the United States, Colombia, Ecuador, China, Japan, and Korea.

The ensemble has performed as a special guest with leading 
figures such as Bobby McFerrin, the King’s Singers, and the Camerata Salzburgo. It has also worked in collaboration, making contemporary music with the Dresden Symphonic Orchestra and the National Symphonic Orchestra, colonial music with the Mercury Baroque Orchestra, and traditional Mexican music with the Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán and the Marimba Nandayapa. Voz en Punto has such universal appeal that it 
can perform at a concert hall or plaza, with a mariachi band or a symphonic orchestra, old or contemporary music, for children or
in a cabaret show. It is because of this diversity that Carlos Fuentes, the great Mexican author, said after listening to the ensemble in Berlin: “Voz en Punto really achieves the polyphony that we all aspire to as artists.”

Tickets for the Voz en Punto Gustavus Artist Series concert on Monday, November 16, 2015, are available online at gustavustickets.com. Tickets will also be available for sale at the door to Jussi Björling Recital Hall on Monday night. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of the world’s truly fine a cappella vocal jazz ensembles in concert.
