Although they are simply four voices and a tambourine, Tonic Sol-fa has spent considerable time on the road carving their niche as the nation’s top vocal group. In the midst of touring, this quartet has been named one of the top five “must see” groups in America; has been awarded numerous original song and album awards in pop, gospel and holiday genres; and appeared on NBC’s Today Show and in Newsweek magazine. Outings with Jay Leno, Shawn Colvin, and Garrison Keillor have propelled album sales to more than 2 million copies and have earned the group thousands of intensely loyal fans.
The Adrian Choral Festival, taking place the same day at UD, will assemble over 40 high school vocalists from the surrounding region to form the Adrian Honor Choir. The choir, after a day of individual voice lessons with UD faculty and rehearsals under the direction of Dr. Craig Arnold, will have the unique opportunity to share the stage with the renowned quartet.
