The Chillicothe Area Arts Council will present it’s next program, featuring Six Appeal Vocal Band on Sunday, Feb. 11. The program begins at 3 p.m. at Gary Dickinson Performing Arts Center. Six Appeal is one of the busiest touring a cappella ensembles in the country, said Mary Lou VanDeventer, administrator of the Chillicothe Area Arts Council. “From coast to coast, the group has become known for their vivid musical style, unmatched energy, and playful charm,” she said. “Their far-reaching repertoire spans a multitude of decades and genres, including Pop, Country, Classic Rock, Jazz, R & B, and much more. If you can imagine it, they can sing it.” In 2012, Six Appeal won the title of National Harmony Sweepstakes Championship, securing their place in the a cappella community. The appeal of these young men enables the group to perform anywhere from college campuses, to state fairs, corporate functions, community festivals, theaters, K-12 classrooms, and has even brought them into the national spotlight, singing for the 2013 Allstate Super Bowl live on ESPN. With members formally instructed in singing and musical composition, and more than 75 combined years of musical training and experience, Six Appeal utilizes a diverse arsenal of style and entertainment, VanDeventer said. In addition, Six Appeal has a passion for spreading their a cappella music to every audience, and an essential aspect of their mission is to empower young singers in their educational outreach program. The box office opens 2 p.m. Admission for non-season ticket holders is $20 for adults and $5 for students. For more information, call the Arts Office 660-646-1173.
