BRATTLEBORO -- A few tickets are still available for the 10th Annual Collegiate A Cappella Benefit Concert, held on Saturday, Feb. 2, at 7:30 p.m., at the Latchis Theatre.

This year’s special 10th anniversary concert features seven groups, including fan favorites the Tufts Beelzebubs, the Dartmouth Aires, and the Mandarins from Syracuse. A brand new group, the Amherst College Zumbyes, features a local singer from Peterborough, N.H.

The special anniversary concert will also feature the return of a few of the very first groups, including Brattleboro’s own John Wesley and Wesleyan University’s Quasimodal, Dummerston’s Sean Ryan and the Tufts University Amalgamates and The Smiffenpoofs of Smith College, the oldest women’s a cappella group in the country.

Tickets are $20 for balcony, $28 for rear orchestra and $35 for front orchestra. Proceeds benefit the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center.

Purchase tickets at www.brattleborotix.com or by calling the BMAC at 802-257-0124, ext. 101.

For those of you who can’t get enough a cappella, the High School A Cappella Warm-up concert is on Friday, Feb. 1, at 8 p.m., at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center.

The lineup for Feb. 1 includes Renegade, Shoulder Narrows, Spiralia and Xpressivo, which are all student-run independent groups from the Brattleboro area. In addition, two high school ensembles will return to round out the show -- Patty Meyer’s BUHS Madrigals and Ron Kelley’s Leland & Gray Madrigals.
