Thursday Events

Chairman’s Reception, Dinner and Entertainment

6 to 11 p.m. Thursday, June 13
Sharing the Harmony. Original. Imaginative. Ridiculous. A Cappella.

The cast of VoicePlay has taken the timeless sound of vocal music and turned it completely on its head. Re-imagined as a full stage show, the amazing, humorous, and vertigo-inducing harmonies pepper VoicePlay’s music-without-music sound. Their performance ping-pongs between eras and styles, channeling the breadth of the musical landscape, and lacing it with inventive and often hilarious on-stage theatrics.

Fit for all ages, VoicePlay’s music and performances are an impossible to miss hit that have to be heard to be believed!

A DJ will end the night with dancing.
