Street Corner Symphony, the Nashville-based a cappella group that shot to stardom on NBC’s “The Sing-Off,” joins hit singer/songwriter and keyboardist Gabe Dixon and friends for an evening of holiday music, Christmas cheer and special collaborations at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s James K. Polk Theater on Dec. 2.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, Oct. 13, at 10 a.m. at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040, and at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St., in downtown Nashville.
The two groups are coming together for a family-friendly show of original and popular Christmas music, sing-a-longs and special guest surprises that celebrate the holidays as only Music City can.
Street Corner Symphony will perform a variety of holiday classics, original Christmas music, classic rock, R&B/Soul, with some improv elements, including a special collaboration with Dixon and his band. Dixon will perform a spirited set of Christmas tunes and originals inspired by the season, including songs from his Christmas EP on Spotify, including “Don’t Want to Let Christmas Go,” “Drivin’ Around Town,” and “Christmas Time is Here.”
“I’m really excited to bring some holiday cheer, and play some of my songs with Street Corner Symphony,” Dixon said.
“We’re all big fans of holiday music, and we’re incredibly excited to be sharing the stage with Gabe,” said Jeremy Lister of Street Corner Symphony. “We’re thrilled to bring in the holidays with our friends and fans in Nashville. Plus, it’s a huge honor for us to be doing our first show at TPAC.”
About Street Corner Symphony:
Street Corner Symphony is a contemporary a cappella group based in Nashville, Tennessee, founded on May 28, 2010, to compete in NBC’s all-vocal competition, “The Sing-Off.” The Southern gents quickly won over judges Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), Shawn Stockman (Boyz II Men) and Nicole Scherzinger (The Pussycat Dolls) and – most importantly – millions of primetime viewers after demonstrating their unique, laid-back-yet-dynamic style of a cappella.
Since, Street Corner Symphony has made their mark on the music world, recording albums, providing clinics for schools, giving benefits for cancer, performing across the country and around the world and even working with major artists including Ben Folds, Alison Krauss and Take 6’s Claude McKnight. Street Corner Symphony moves seamlessly between most styles of music, feeling at home in all of them. Their repertoire covers a wide range, from gospel and barbershop to rock and pop, appealing to the young and old alike.
About Gabe Dixon:
Gabe Dixon released his sophomore solo album, “Turns To Gold,” on April 8, 2016. Produced by Paul Moak (Mat Kearney, Third Day), engineered by Devin Vaughan (Marc Broussard), and mastered by Brad Blackwood at Euphonics Mastering (Allison Krauss & Union Station, Luther Dickinson), the LP marks Gabe’s first official collection as an independent artist.
Throughout his career, many other notable artists have taken note of and supported Gabe’s immense talents. He’s opened for and toured with the likes of Loggins & Messina, Gavin DeGraw and Delta Rae, as well as held side-gigs as the keyboardist and vocalist for Paul McCartney, Alison Krauss & Union Station, O.A.R. and Supertramp. His songs have received placements on major television shows including Parks and Recreation, Grey’s Anatomy, and Vampire Diaries, and his song “Find My Way” served as the title for the box office hit The Proposal starring Sandra Bullock. Fans have seen him perform twice on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, as well as The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and on festival stages everywhere from Bonnaroo to High Sierra Music Festival. However, it’s with “Turns To Gold” that listeners will hear Gabe Dixon as he always meant.
