The Sing Off, or want to know what all the fuss
is about them, this concert is a must! Coming
together in 2004 from their beginnings in the
Hochschule f¨¹r Musik and the Boys Choir of
Hannover, Germany, Vocaldente has developed
over the course of only a few short years into an
internationally acclaimed and sought-after vocal
ensemble. In 2007 and 2008 they won first prizes
at several renowned international a cappella
competitions, including Audience Favorite and
Champion of the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cap-
pella Festival, the premier contest for top-notch a
cappella talent in the US. Now over 100 concerts
and appearances per year are on the program
of this quintet that takes them throughout their
homeland of Germany, across Europe and on ex-
tensive and repeated tours of the USA as well as
Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Japan and
Taiwan. Praise has followed the performances
of this group. The Hannoversche Zeitung pro-
claimed, ¡°The applause was thunderous after two
hours of pure vocal art.¡° The S¨¹dkurier Online

into an orchestra, you can be sure they belong to
the five guys from Hannover.¡± Their appearance
here in November is part of a 16 concert tour in
the central states of the US.
