Arlington’s own a cappella sensations and winners of NBC’s The Sing-Off!
Vocal sensations and winners of season 3 of NBC’s The Sing-Off, Pentatonix is taking instrument-free music beyond anyone’s wildest expectations. Named after the world’s most widely recognized five-note musical scale, this vocal quintet has transformed one of pop music’s purest and most soulful expressions into limitless sonic possibility. Pairing their intricate arrangements with cleverly re-imagined pop songs, Pentatonix has quickly cultivated a sound and style that is unique and undeniably infectious. Since their win on The Sing-Off, the members of Pentatonix have all relocated to Los Angeles and continued to build upon their fiercely loyal fan base. They regularly introduce new material via their YouTube channel, including covers of Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know, Fun’s We Are Young and Psy’s Gangnam Style. Their first EP, PTX Volume 1, debuted at number 14 on the Billboard Top 200 and was followed by a Christmas EP, PTXmas. The three lead singers, Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado and Mitch Grassi are all Martin High School grads. Kirstie and Mitch grew up fine-tuning their talents on the Theatre Arlington stage, while Scott was a regular at Creative Arts Theatre & School and Johnny High’s. The bass and percussion section, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola, joined forces with the Arlington trio when they decided to enter the The Sing-Off.
