Join Vocal Rush for their final concert of the year! The group will send off graduating members and welcome back alumni onstage for a song or two. Opening performances from Vocal Rush's sister groups: Encore, OSA's award-winning middle school a cappella group, and SHE, a newly-formed all-female high school ensemble and 3rd place winners in the ICHSA Semi-Finals. It will be a night of joyous harmony singing from Oakland's youth!

 

Vocal Rush is a four-time national champion a cappella ensemble based out of Oakland School for the Arts (OSA) and comprised of singers ages 15-18. Combining passion, talent and dedication, along with the vision of director/founder Lisa Forkish, Vocal Rush has become one of the most respected high school a cappella groups in the U.S. since their inception in March, 2011. Before joining the renowned School of Vocal Music faculty at OSA, led by chair/founder Cava Menzies, Forkish was music director for the University of Oregon’s award-winning a cappella group Divisi, featured in Mickey Rapkin's book "Pitch Perfect," later made into the box-office smash film. Vocal Rush has received numerous accolades, including national championship titles in 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016, a first place win at the L.A. A Cappella Festival, and  perhaps most notably, a third place win on NBC's hit a cappella competition show, “The Sing-Off." Past members of Vocal Rush have performed for President Obama as well as OSA founder, California Governor Jerry Brown. The group has released two full-length albums and one EP (all available on iTunes) and has been nominated for six Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, including Best High School Album. The ensemble has the soulful stage presence that reflects all that is unique to OSA and sets them apart in the a cappella scene. Vocal Rush brings to life the heart and soul of Oakland School for the Arts, putting their all into every performance. See these young singers in action at www.youtube.com/osavocalrush.
