St. Augustine, FL — The EMMA Concert Association is proud to announce the first concert of its 43rd Season. Voctave — an a Cappella Sensation — will be on stage from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, September 11, 2021 in Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College, 14 Granada St., downtown St. Augustine. Tickets are available at emmaconcerts.com or call 904-797-2800.
Best known for its Disney medleys, showtunes and Christmas songs and watched by more than 150 million on YouTube, the Orlando-based Voctave is an a cappella ensemble — meaning the 11 members sing unaccompanied. Formed in 2015 by producer and arranger Jamey Ray, the voices that bring their artistic arrangements to life represent a wealth of diverse backgrounds and musical experiences.
The group has performed with Grammy, Dove and American Music Award winners. With multiple No. 1 songs and albums on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify, Voctave has also ranked in the top 25 on Billboard Magazine’s charts. The group has recorded a total of 8 albums. In 2019, the group performed with an orchestra for the first time at the 84th Bach Festival in Winter Park, Florida.
“We are excited to bring beautiful live music back to our beautiful city,” said Joanne Everett, President of EMMA Board of Directors.
Tickets are $50 per guest and include parking and a shuttle to and from the venue. Parking will not be available at Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College for this concert. Parking will take place at the St. Johns County Council on Aging, 180 Marine St., St. Augustine FL 32084. Guests will then be transported to and from the concert venue by shuttle service. Student tickets are available for $10 with student ID, and children’s tickets are also $10 per child.
