Time : 7:30PM

Admission : $40 General / $15 USC Aiken students with ID

Location : Etherredge Center

 

Comprised of current students from the University of Exeter in The United Kingdom, SEMITONED has been at the forefront of British a cappella for several years: winners of the Voice Festival UK, the Edinburgh Fringe Bobby award and now the champions of BBC2’s show The Choir: Gareth’s Best in Britain.
This will be their third tour of the USA. Praised for their creativity, uniqueness and vocal acrobatics the group embraces music of a variety of genres to ensure there really is something for everyone in any of their shows. In Semi-Toned presents: Season Three, the ensemble takes the audience on a thrilling journey
from the 70s through to the present day, all via the medium of music—and completely unaccompanied. The show promises to give audiences more of what they love; the same humour, innovation and musicality that is synonymous with the boys in burgundy. And if that wasn’t compelling enough, the group is also renowned for its dancing ability!

When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent.

Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

“Daddy’s Dyin’” concerns the reunion of a family gathered to await the imminent death of their patriarch, who has recently suffered a physically as well as mentally disabling stroke. In essence, however, it is not the story of the impending demise of the father or of the drafting of his will, but of a rebirth of the spirit of the family unit.
