Tickets are available exclusively through http://www.BrattleboroTix.com. Prices range from $20 to $35, with a limited number of front-row, VIP tickets available at $75 each.

The all-male Dartmouth Aires and Tufts Beelzebubs are veterans of NBC's a cappella competition show, "The Sing-Off." Both groups finished in second place -- the Aires in 2011, and the Bubs in 2009. Both groups make a point of including Brattleboro on their annual touring schedules, which also feature performances throughout the country and around the world, at major sporting events, and at such venues as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and The White House. The Bubs were the real-life voices of the Dalton Academy Warblers on Fox's smash hit "Glee," and they were the focus of the book "Pitch Perfect," on which the 2012 blockbuster Hollywood movie of the same name was based. The Bubs count among their alumni Brattleboro native Penn Rosen, BMAC Director Danny Lichtenfeld, Putney School Director of Admissions John Barrengos, and Saxtons River physician Gary Clay.
Making their first appearance in Brattleboro are the co-ed Clark Bars of Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, whose members include Julia Stevens, a 2013 graduate of Brattleboro Union High School. Returning to the Latchis stage are the UVM Cat's Meow, with Christine Lanoue, a 2010 graduate of Mt. Anthony Union High School in Bennington. Rounding out the lineup are the all-male Amherst Zumbyes, whom the New York Times called "the most dangerous a cappella group on the planet," and one more group to be announced soon.
