The Filharmonic, a Los Angeles-based a cappella group of young Filipino-American singers who were featured in NBC's hit musical competition "The Sing-Off," will be appearing in an upcoming Marquis Series event at Coe College. The performance will be held on Saturday, Feb. 3, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Sinclair Auditorium.

Marquis Series patrons can purchase individual tickets for $15, $10 for students and seniors. Tickets may be purchased online at coe.edu/marquis or by calling the Coe Box Office at 319-399-8600, Monday – Friday, between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets will also be available at the door.

The five-piece vocal group joined "The Sing-Off" national tour and was featured in the popular Universal Pictures movie, "Pitch Perfect 2." After appearing on "The Late Late Show," the vocalists went viral. The group brings their unique blend of hip hop, pop and 90s nostalgia to more than 150 college stages nationwide each year. According to a review published by Entertainment Weekly, "The Filharmonic knows how to put on an effortless performance, dancing and just having a party."

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.
