NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Tickets are still available for the much-anticipated performance of the Olga Vocal Ensemble at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University. The concert is part of the SFA College of Fine Arts' University Series.

Hailing from the Netherlands with members also from Iceland and Russia, Olga is known for its unique programs, in which moving classical music comes together with popular songs, according to Scott Shattuck, associate dean of the College of Fine Arts and director of the University Series.

"Our upcoming concert features a super-charming quintet of European guys singing up an a cappella storm," Shattuck said. "They're best known for their classical repertoire as well as Icelandic, Ukranian and American folk tunes, but they've also been known to perform a variety of pop songs, from Bruno Mars and Alicia Keys to the doo-wop hits of the 1950s."

Prior to the performance, Dr. Tim King, director of choral activities at SFA, will present an informative talk about Olga's music style at 7 p.m. in Griffith Gallery. The gallery is located across the hall from Turner Auditorium in the Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive. The audience is invited back to the gallery for a post-performance reception to meet the performers and to honor the event's corporate sponsor, BancorpSouth.

Single event ticket prices are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $10 for non-SFA students/youth. Tickets for SFA students are $3. An advertisement for the concert currently running in The Daily Sentinel offers a buy-one, get-one of equal value coupon.
