Secrest Artists Series presents The Bobs, a cappella comedy, Sept. 14

This is a guest post from the Secrest Artists Series:

The Bobs

Manhattan Transfer meets Monty Python…Robin Williams meets Bobby McFerrin…that’s The Bobs. This original “band without instruments” has been skewering the classics and breaking all the rules in the world of vocal music for more than 30 years, playing everywhere from Lincoln Center to Berlin’s Passionkirche. This is your last chance to hear these remarkable – and remarkably funny – experts of a cappella music, as they perform for the Secrest Artists Series on their farewell tour.  The concert will be presented Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Brendle Recital Hall, Scales Fine Arts Center.

Enrich your concert-going experience by joining a pre-performance talk at 6:40 p.m. in M208, adjacent to Brendle Recital Hall. The talk will be led by Nathan Zullinger, an instructor and Cantata Singers conductor at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.  It will focus on the historical roots of a cappella singing and comedy in music.

 Wake Forest and School of Medicine faculty, staff and retirees receive free admission for themselves and one guest to each Secrest Artists Series performance. Wake Forest students receive free admission for themselves. Simply show your WFU I.D. at the door.

Tickets for the community are $5-$18.  Information available at or 336-758-5757.
