A CAPPELLA | Pentatonix



Recognized by its unexpected stylistic range and impressive adaptations of pop hits, the five-piece a cappella group Pentatonix will make its way to Darien Lake for a concert full of originals and mashups as part of its "On My Way Home" tour. Pentatonix came into the limelight when high school friends Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, and Scott Hoying covered a version of Beyoncé and Lady Gaga's "Telephone" and posted it on YouTube. Band members Kevin Olusola and Avi Kaplan were added shortly after. The group auditioned for NBC's "The Sing-Off" in 2011 and won first place. Pentatonix will join "American Idol" Season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson on her "Piece by Piece" tour, with opening acts Eric Hutchinson and Abi Ann.

Pentatonix will perform on Tuesday, July 21, at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, 9993 Alleghany Road, Darien Center. 7 p.m. $20-$109.50.;
