Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

The Span­ish Fork Arts Coun­cil is once again pleased to pre­sent the Har­vest Moon Hur­rah - now in its 12th year! This free com­mu­nity event for the en­tire fam­ily will be held Satur­day, Sept. 17, at the City Park, lo­cated on the cor­ner of Cen­ter and Main streets, from 3 to 9 p.m. In keep­ing with the event’s tra­di­tion of out­stand­ing en­ter­tain­ment - which in the past has in­cluded en­ter­tain­ers such as The Piano Guys, Eclipse, Lind­sey Stir­ling and The Na­tional Parks - this year Brigham Young Univer­sity’s Vo­cal Point will be the Hur­rah’s fea­tured per­former. The event will also wel­come back the wildly pop­u­lar Green Man Group from Utah Val­ley Univer­sity and other lo­cal fa­vorites such as the Amer­i­can Lead­er­ship Acad­emy Show Choirs, jug­gling sto­ry­teller Drew Briney, the Span­ish Fork Chorale and the Nebo Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra. Also per­form­ing will be three new and tal­ented per­form­ing groups: Sail­ing Pa­per Boats, Whit­ney Lusk and An­drew Wis­combe. En­ter­tain­ment will run from 4 to 9 p.m. Be­gin­ning at 3 p.m. will be the chil­dren’s crafts and games in the large tent and the gi­ant paint-it-your­self mu­rals. At

4 p.m., pump­kin dec­o­rat­ing, clowns and bal­loon an­i­mals, sto­ry­telling and car­i­ca­ture il­lus­tra­tions will be­gin. At 5 p.m., the hay rides with live blue­grass mu­sic will be­gin. The ac­tiv­i­ties will wrap up be­tween 6 and 7 p.m. so that ev­ery­one can en­joy the fea­tured en­ter­tain­ers.

There will also be food ven­dors and food trucks serv­ing up de­li­cious food at fam­ily-friendly prices.

Spon­sors from the lo­cal com­mu­nity in­clude Macey’s and Cre­ative Signs & Graph­ics. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.span­ish­fork.org.

Na­tion­ally renowned a cap­pella group Vo­cal Point gives stun­ning, high-en­ergy per­for­mances that won them the In­ter­na­tional Cham­pi­onship of Col­le­giate A Cap­pella and a faith­ful fol­low­ing through­out the world. The group com­peted on NBC’s “The Sing-Off” in 2011. Each week, Vo­cal Point and other a cap­pella groups per­formed and were judged by record­ing artists Ben Folds, Sara Bareilles and Shawn Stock­man. Vo­cal Point fin­ished as one of the top five fi­nal groups on this na­tion­ally tele­vised com­pe­ti­tion.

With a varied reper­toire and a wide range of vo­cal pos­si­bil­i­ties - and seem­ing im­pos­si­bil­i­ties - these crowd-pleasers have it all: rock, pop, coun­try, jazz, and R&B all mixed into the time of your life. This nine-man group takes the songs you hear on the ra­dio, re­tools them and de­liv­ers a new ren­di­tion, com­plete with all the com­plex in­stru­men­ta­tion, done en­tirely with their mouths. Their fam­ily-friendly show is a toe-tap­per and their per­for­mance is a show­stop­per. Each Vo­cal Point mem­ber dis­plays mu­si­cal abil­ity, cre­ativ­ity and stage ex­pe­ri­ence - a com­bi­na­tion which adds up to orig­i­nal, skill­ful and spir­ited per­for­mances.

Each Vo­cal Point mem­ber dis­plays mu­si­cal abil­ity, cre­ativ­ity, and stage ex­pe­ri­ence-a com­bi­na­tion which adds up to orig­i­nal, skill­ful, and spir­ited per­for­mances. “Well that’s about the most pro­fes­sional group at the col­le­giate level any­where,” says Deke Sharon, founder of the Con­tem­po­rary A Cap­pella So­ci­ety of Amer­ica (CASA) and Vo­cal Pro­ducer of NBC’s The Sing Off. “Se­ri­ously, that’s as close as any­one could ever get to be­ing a rock star.” In 2016, Vo­cal Point was awarded three Con­tem­po­rary A cap­pella Record­ing Awards in the cat­e­gories of Best Re­li­gious Al­bum, Best Re­li­gious Song, and Best Male Col­le­giate Solo by the Con­tem­po­rary A Cap­pella So­ci­ety.

UVU’s Green Man Group was founded in 2010 and has grown into a univer­sity hit as they en­ter­tain and en­liven the at­mos­phere of UVU sporting events.
