Zumbyes performing at RiverMead
The a cappella group The Zumbyes will be in concert at RiverMead on Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
The Zumbyes is the oldest continuous a cappella group at Amherst College. Founded in 1950 by a pack of freshmen who preferred jazz to the traditional collegiate repertoire of the period (barbershop, glees, etc), the group today boasts an energetic and complex repertoire reflecting significant jazz influence. The group’s performances are better thought of as spectacles for their witty skits, elaborate choreography, strong musical blend and the motley characters they feature.
The concert is free of charge and open to the public.
