Recognized as one of the world’s best a cappella groups, Basix performs at the University of Wyoming Thursday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the College of Arts and Sciences auditorium as part of the fall Cultural Programs series.

Tickets cost $20 for the public; $17 for seniors and UW faculty and staff members; and free for UW students. Tickets are available at the Wyoming Union Information Desk and the Buchanan Center for Performing Arts box offices or by calling (307) 766-6666.

Basix, the seven-time Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards (CARA) winner, returns to UW for an evening of music guaranteed to delight the masses and make audiences want encore after encore, says Janelle Fletcher-Kilmer, director of UW Fine Arts Outreach.

Basix has performed in a number of concert halls, clubs, churches, festivals and on television shows with acts such as Westlife, Katie Melua, Mick Hucknall (Simply Red), Gavin DeGraw and Sissel. Basix’s sound spans pop, rock, soul and jazz.

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 CARA, stayed on the "Top 10" charts for seven weeks and went platinum (in Denmark, it’s silver, gold, herring and platinum).

The group is a Scandinavian six-piece vocal ensemble that sings both its own self-penned material and creates arrangements of some of the greatest hits of other artists.
