Valentine's Day a cappella concert to showcase humor and drama

January 25, 2017

Have plans this Valentine’s Day?

How about enjoying some a cappella music that combines enthusiasm, humor and drama? There will even be some Medieval Icelandic drinking songs, too.

Olga Vocal Ensemble, a young a cappella singing group, will perform Tuesday, Feb. 14, at Penn State Behrend as part of Music at Noon: The Logan Series. The performance takes place at noon in McGarvey Commons, in the college’s Reed Union Building. Admission is free, and reserved parking for audience members will be available in the Reed lot.

Olga Vocal Ensemble was founded in 2012 at the Utrecht Conservatory in the Netherlands. The group is known for its unique programs where classical music meets popular repertoire. With Dutch, Icelandic and Russian singers, as well as music from many cultures and genres, Olga is truly an international ensemble.

The group has performed several concerts both in and out of the Netherlands and also regularly tours Iceland. Their debut album was released in 2014.

Music at Noon: The Logan Series was founded by Kay Logan in 1989 and receives major support from the Kay Logan Trust. Additional funding is provided by the Penn State Behrend Student Activity Fee. Music at Noon receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Additional support for this program is provided in part from an Erie Arts & Culture Project Grant, made possible by community contributions to the Combined Arts & Cultural Campaign and the Erie Arts Endowment.
