The University of Wyoming fall Cultural Programs' concert series continues with Basix, an a cappella ensemble, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, in the Fine Arts concert hall.
Tickets cost $28 for the public, $24 for students and senior citizens. To purchase tickets, go to the Web site at www.uwyo.edu/finearts or call (307) 766-6666.
Basix began by winning the top award at the Dansk Melody Grand Prix contest, broadcast live on national television. Its first album, The Grass, won the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award (CARA), stayed on the "Top 10" charts for seven weeks and "went platinum" (in Denmark, it's silver, gold, herring and platinum).
Since then, Basix has won the CARA award three more times, and has now been touring internationally, with its own blend of pop, jazz, r&b, soul and rock and roll.
