The Emmy-award winning a capella group, Tonic Sol-Fa, will be performing a concert this Friday, Sept. 8, at 7 p.m. in the Perham High School Auditorium.

Tonic Sol-Fa has established itself not only as the most in-demand vocal group in the Midwest, but also one of the most successful independent acts in America. In addition to substantial CD sales of its own independent releases (2,000,000 copies sold), the group has toured extensively throughout the US and abroad, building their financial base with a steady list of festivals and private shows that eventually led to numerous sold-out tours of theaters and small arenas.
