PRLog (Press Release)Oct 11, 2011– Epic, the Washington, D.C., region’s freshest acapella female quartet, has announced it will appear as the opening performance on the Reunion Music Society’s “Jazz with Strings” program, scheduled October 16 at Ernst Community Cultural Center Theater on the NOVA-Annandale campus.

During the “Jazz with Strings” performance, the Reunion Music Society Jazz and the NOVA-Annandale Symphony Orchestras will combine to perform a concert paying tribute to the music of Charlie Parker and Clifford Brown.

Epic, a female acapella quartet specializing in barbershop harmony, will present its diverse and harmonic styling in the atrium of the Cultural Center starting at 7 p.m.

“The fantastic thing about acapella harmony is that it complements and reflects so many diverse styles of music,” said Anne Albright, lead singer for Epic. “Whether recreating pop tunes on televised competition reality shows or opening for a concert aiming to tribute the great jazz musicians Charlie Parker and Clifford Brown, acapella harmony is flexible enough to fit any occasion.”

“We’re thrilled to be a part of this event with such talented musical organizations,” Albright added. “It will be a show worth attending, for sure.”

Epic is a vibrant quartet filled with an impressive blend musical and life experiences. Its members are Kristina Adams (baritone), Anne Albright (lead), Shana Oshiro (bass), and Christina Lewellen (tenor).

Epic formed when two barbershop acapella harmony singers, a jazz singer and an opera singer found they discovered a common love of ringing chords, fun rehearsals and fantastic shoes. The foursome hails from Virginia and Maryland and is proudly affiliated with the Harmony, Inc., a premier international organization of women barbershop harmony singers.
