Straight No Chaser

When: Sun., Nov. 29, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Whether purveyed by the Ink Spots or Bobby McFerrin, vocal approximations of the sound of musical instruments often approach shtick. Yet for a genre that owes a deep debt to the barbershop quartet tradition, a cappella has shed its uncool roots with a vengeance. So has Straight No Chaser, a 10-member choral group that originated at Indiana University nearly two decades ago. The group’s latest record, The New Old Fashioned, is a succinct summation of the ensemble’s ethos. It includes covers of songs by Dylan and Frankie Valli after a previous foray into hits by the likes of Adele and Oasis. —David Klein
