Dalton Center hosts state's lone Toxic Audio concert

Oct. 7, 2005

KALAMAZOO--Award-winning a cappella vocal group Toxic Audio comes to the Dalton Center Recital Hall at Western Michigan University for a single performance at 8:15 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14.

General admission tickets are $15 and $5 for students and senior citizens and are available through the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office at (269) 387-2300 or toll free (800) 228-9858.

"Toxic Audio is an outstanding a cappella group," says Dr. Steve Zegree, director of WMU's acclaimed vocal jazz ensemble Gold Company. "They feature a wonderfully unique, highly enjoyable, and flat out fun musical experience that will appeal to people of all ages."

Winners of a 2004 Drama Desk award for its highly-acclaimed Off-Broadway show, "Loudmouth," Toxic Audio's repertoire includes vocal jazz, rock and pop music, combined with comedy and musical theatre. This will be the only appearance in Michigan for Toxic Audio, which is currently appearing in an extended run at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

The group originated as a featured performing ensemble at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., and has since toured and performed throughout the world. Of local interest to Southwest Michigan, the lead soprano in Toxic Audio is Michelle Mailhot, an alumna of the WMU Jazz Studies Program.
