Tonic Sol-fa comes to Sinclair Auditorium on Friday, Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Named as one of the top five “must see” vocal groups in America, Tonic Sol-fa, will perform as part of the Coe College Marquis Series on Friday, Nov. 11, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Sinclair Auditorium.

Tickets are $15 for the general public, $10 for students and seniors.  Tickets are available by calling the Coe Box Office at 319-399-8600, Monday – Friday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.  Tickets will also be available at the door the night of the event.

The a cappella quartet Tonic Sol-fa has spent the past decade on the road carving their niche as one of the nation’s top vocal ensembles.  In that time, Tonic Sol-fa has been awarded numerous original song and album awards in pop, gospel and holiday genres, and has appeared on NBC’s “Today Show” and in the pages of Newsweek magazine.

With album sales of more than two million copies, the group performs in more than 150 shows across the country each year.  In 2010, Tonic Sol-fa won its first Emmy Award in the “Musical Composition/Arrangement” category for a song performed in a Toys for Tots Public Service Announcement. The New York Times describes Tonic Sol-fa’s sound as, “A vocal kaleidoscope…unique to the human voice.”   Critics and fans agree: nobody does it like Tonic Sol-fa.

The Coe College Lecture and Performance Series is funded in part by a gift from the estate of Sarah Marquis in honor of her father, Dr. John A. Marquis, who was president of Coe College from 1909-1920.  The purpose of the series is to bring entertainment and educational experiences to the Coe campus for the benefit of the entire community.
