EVENT: Second Show Added for YellowJackets Fall Benefit Concert

December 2, 2011

3 p.m. Show Sold Out; Second Concert Begins at 7 p.m.


WHO: After tickets for their Fall Benefit Concert sold out in just a few days, the YellowJackets, along with all-girl powerhouses Delilah and newly crowned The Sing-Off season three champions Pentatonix, will take the stage for a second show the evening of Sunday, Dec. 11.

TIME, DATE, PLACE: 7 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 11, in Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre (60 Gibbs Street, Rochester).

WHAT: The concert will feature a selection of songs heard on The Sing-Off, including World Cup anthem Wavin' Flag by K'naan. All proceeds from the concerts will benefit the YellowJacket's "United We Sing" Kenya Project.

Additionally, an after-school a cappella group comprised of students from the Rochester City School District's World of Inquiry will take the stage in its debut performance. The group, ROCappella, was created in a partnership between the YellowJackets and the World of Inquiry. This fall, members of the YellowJackets met weekly with a group of students, helping them learn singing techniques and introducing them to a cappella arrangements of popular songs heard on the radio.
