The nationally known a cappella group Street Corner Symphony, a finalist on the second season of NBC’s The Sing-Off, returns to Kettering Saturday, November 8th, for an all-day a cappella festival and a 7 p.m. public concert in the Trent Arena.
The six-man group, based in Nashville, features Kettering native Kurt Zimmerman on vocal percussion. Zimmerman, who graduated from Kettering Fairmont in 2012, was a three-year member of the acclaimed Fairmont a cappella group Eleventh Hour. Besides Zimmerman, Street Corner Symphony includes brothers Jeremy, Jonathan and Richie Lister, along with Adam Chance and Mark McLemore. Their repertoire covers a wide range from Gospel and barbershop to rock and pop.
Street Corner Symphony last performed in Kettering at Fraze Pavilion in August 2013, just a month after releasing Southern Autumn Nostalgia, their first album of all original music. Their YouTube performance of “Misty Mountains” from The Hobbit has more than 400,000 views, and their cover of Lorde’s hit song “Royals” has logged more than 75,000.
