Vega, CJ’s premier a cappella group, opens its slate of performances for the 2014-15 school year at historic Victoria Theatre (directions) in downtown Dayton this Sunday, Sept. 14.
The Eagles septet was invited to be the opening act at a 20th Anniversary Concert for the Good Neighbor House, a local faith-based nonprofit organization. Headlining the event is nationally renowned gospel and jazz a cappella ensemble, Take 6.
The show begins at 5 p.m. Tickets are available at www.ticketcenterstage.com or by calling (937) 228-3630.
Last April, Vega took to Broadway and placed second among the nation's top 10 groups at the International Championship of High School A Cappella (ICHSA). Six of the seven student vocalists are back from a year ago, with newcomer Tucker Helms joining returners. Also joining the mix is Bryan Sharpe, who takes over as director for group founder Joe Whatley ‘04.

New tunes for 2014-15 include “Maps” by Maroon 5, “Classic” by NKTO, and a 90’s throwback -- the Goo Goo Dolls’ smash hit, “Iris.”
