Broomfield Enterprise
A cappella comes to town
City hosts new fall concert series

If Leo Tolstoy was right, music is the shorthand of emotion, then all-vocal a cappella is even more succinct than that. You can hear for yourself, as the area's top a cappella groups will be performing at a three-concert series coming to the Broomfield Auditorium this fall.

The city's first ever fall concert series, "A Cappella Ala Carte," opens this Friday, Sept. 19, headlining with the award-winning Denver-based a cappella ensemble, 17th Avenue Allstars.

The idea to host an a cappella series came from the auditorium itself, said Zimmerman. "The acoustics in there are so great, it really has become a home for many of our local choral and chamber groups," she said.

The second concert in the series features another award-winning a cappella group, Groove Society, comprised of members from University of Northern Colorado's renowned jazz program. The final group, Cool Shooz, performs on Nov. 13.

The concert series falls under the city's six-point cultural master plan called Creative Broomfield, charged in part with providing cultural diversity by bringing local music groups to the community.

"We try to introduce a cultural dimension to the Broomfield scene that might not otherwise have been experienced," Zimmerman said.
