Legendary Sounds of the Four Freshmen Come to Norman's Sooner Theatre
Norman, OK — The Four Freshmen continue to bring their unique brand of vocal harmony to audiences worldwide. The legendary sound that began in 1948 with Bob, Don, Ross and Hal continues on in the 21st century. Brian, Curtis, Vince and Bob have been performing together since 2001. Their unmistakable sound will be live at The Sooner Theatre Friday, April 6, 2012, at 8 p.m.
The Four Freshmen perform with that same unmistakable sound of the original group--a vocal harmony like no other. Four parts harmony, a twist of elegance, with a splash of swing, and a whole lot of fun! They have strongly influenced many groups over the years including, Take Six, Manhattan Transfer and the Beach Boys. As the 22nd incarnation of the one and only Four Freshmen, their longevity proves they are doing it right. They are some of the best jazz talents in the business.
The new group not only preserves the Freshmen sound, they enhance it with their youth, vitality and talent giving a new treatment to the Great American Songbook, performing jazz and pop standards in a show not to be missed. In their 60 plus year history The Four Freshmen have bragging rights to over 50 albums, an overwhelming 70 top selling singles, and six Grammy Nominations. The Four Freshmen Live From Las Vegas is their most recent CD release.
Tickets are available in three different levels: Star Circle, $50; Main Floor and Premiere Balcony, $45; and Balcony, $40.
The Main Event series is made possible in part by the support of the Oklahoma Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, the City of Norman and the Norman Arts Council. Additional support for the Main Event Concert Series is provided by Republic Bank & Trust.
