When I found out that one of my favorite musician/a cappella group was coming to Calvin, my excitement was beyond what anyone can imagine. Although, in comparison to the day and night they performed, it was just beyond a normal person's excitement.
Who is the Filharmonic?
The Filharmonic is an a cappella group that started their career from the TV show Sing-Off. The group is from Los Angeles, California, where they started performing a cappella. Unlike other a cappella groups, they are a boy band that is all Filipino Americans inspired by 90's music they grew up with. The group's main instrument is their own voice, which I think is amazing. During their journey in Sing-Off, it was theirs to figure out their own style that other groups did not have. They did not win the competition, but it led them to figure out their own voice in the music industry. With their big voices and passion for music, the group to made an appearance for movie Pitch Perfect 2.
The members of the Filharmonic: Barry, Joe, Jules, Niko, Trace and VJ
The Filharmonic's concert is definitely placed in my top 5 I will always love. The group brought out their A game and assured the crowd had fun. I love the fact that the group is humble, entertaining and fun during their concert. They included audience participation and songs that most people know.
After the concert, we were given the chance to ask questions about their music journey.
However, I think the best part of the concert was meeting the Filharmonic!
