Vocal Point

Vocal Point

Vocal Point is Brigham Young University's premiere contemporary a cappella ensemble. Under the direction of James Stevens, Vocal Point's nine-man vocal firepower propels harmonies far beyond traditional four-part possibilities. With inventive arrangements, humor, and remarkable vocal percussion, Vocal Point continually invigorates audiences and generates fans.

Back in 2007 and 2008, I featured Vocal Point regularly on theBestArts. There was a great YouTube channel called ChiroJoel where hundreds of the best west coast college a cappella performances were posted. Because YouTube didn't give music publishers many options to protect their copyrights during that time period, the channel was eventually taken down. Technology now allows publishers to claim performances on YouTube, and receive advertisement royalties. This is a win-win for all sides; perhaps some of those great older Vocal Point performances can someday be re-posted.

Group members in 2011-2012 include: Mike Christensen, McKay Crockett, Keith Evans, Jake Hunsaker, Ben Murphy, Tanner Nilsson, Robert Seely, Tyler Sterling and Ross Welch.

In fall 2011, Vocal Point was selected as one of sixteen groups to perform in NBC's a cappella music show, "The Sing-Off".

Vocal Point performances from "The Sing Off" are available for purchase on iTunes. Note that groups performed twice on some episodes, and each group performed in only two of the first four episodes.
