Published 1:28pm Saturday, June 4, 2011

AUSTIN — The Paramount Theatre will welcome the award-winning a cappella sensation, Home Free, Thursday night.

The performance has a distinctive combination of comedy and music featuring five male vocalists with extensive theatrical and musical training. Each performance showcases a new, animated, and electrifying experience. With a genre of music that covers pop, jazz, classical and country, all songs are done with only the human voice and microphones.

Home Free has performed for a diverse and extensive clientele, ranging from the Minnesota Vikings, to Fortune 500 companies, Celebrity and Norwegian Cruise Lines, Allied Concert touring services, the Dutton Family from America’s Got Talent and many more. It also devotes its time to educating and encouraging music in the public schools through innovative workshops and concert fundraising. To date, its programs have already raised thousands of dollars for schools in Minnesota.

Tickets are $18 for adults and $10 for students, and can be purchased at The Paramount box office between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., Monday through Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. until noon. Call 507-434-0934 for more information or go to www.paramounttheatre.org.
