The human voice will take center stage June 1 when the Center for the Performing Arts presents Straight No Chaser at the Palladium.

Founded at Indiana University and discovered on YouTube by Atlantic Records executives, Straight No Chaser has become one of the world’s top all-male a cappella groups, with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV appearances and a series of successful CD releases.

The performance begins at 8 p.m. Friday, June 1. Tickets starting at $39.50 go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the Palladium Box Office, online at or by phone at (317) 843-3800.

The current nine-man lineup of Straight No Chaser includes six of the original members who formed the group in 1996 as students at IU. Their latest release, Six Pack: Volume 3, showcases their signature approach to rock classics as well as contemporary pop hits, including the show-stopping “Beyonce Medley” and “Sweet Dreams/HandClap,” a mashup of the Eurythmics with Fitz and the Tantrums.

The concert is part of the Center’s Drewry Simmons Vornehm Series and the 2017-18 Season sponsored by Allied Solutions.
