Perpetuum Jazzile – a vocal orchestra – headed for Milwaukee stage


Europe’s Perpetuum Jazzile has returned to the United States for select concert performances.

Having performed for sold-out crowds in America in 2011, the a cappella group from Slovenia features 35 voices creating a “Vocal Orchestra” with vocal percussions, a human beat-box imitating an incredible array of drums, electronic beats and choreographed hand movements that simulate storms for an intense sound experience.

The group is YouTube’s most viewed “extra-large” vocal group in the world with more than 35 million views, as it has garnered a massive worldwide following in just three years. 

The group performs March 19 at the Helene Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts in Milwaukee.

Other tour dates include:

March 14, Ohio Theatre, Cleveland, Ohio; March 16, Carnegie Library of Homestead Music Hall, Munhall, Pa.;  March 17, The Gramercy Theatre, New York, N.Y.;  March 20, Rialto Square Theatre, Joliet, Ill., and March 23, North Iowa Community Auditorium, Mason City, Iowa.

Performances include renditions of pop tunes by Lady Gaga (“Telephone”), Cyndi Lauper (“True Colors”), Earth, Wind & Fire, Gloria Estefan (“Conga”), Bee Gees, Toto (“Rosanna” and “Africa”).
