The 2014-2015 St. James Concert Series opens at 7:00pm on Friday, September 26th at the Coughlin-Saunders Performing Arts Center in Alexandria with Transit Vocal Band. Hailing from North Carolina, Transit features five very talented singers showcasing the most natural musical instrument of all—the human voice. Alex Delaney, April McTaggart, Carl Taylor, James Wallace and Amy Pruitt are passionate about their craft. “Everything you hear from the stage and on our studio recordings begins with the human voice. Utilizing the latest technology, we combine our vocal talents with stage and studio effects to bring our music to life and put on a show that those who have never seen a vocal band will hardly believe,” the group explains. With a diverse repertoire of music from every decade since the 1950s, Transit is sure to please any audience! Including songs by The Beatles, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, the Doobie Brothers, Maroon 5, Christina Perri and many other artists, there’s truly something for everyone!
The St. James Concert Series is offered free and open to the public, made possible by a generous grant from The McCormick-Smith Fund, Inc.
