The Filharmonic

Northwest Missouri State University will welcome The Filharmonic at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 11, in the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts as part of its Encore performance series.

Tickets are free but required to attend. Tickets may be picked up at the cashiering office on the first floor of the Administration Building between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. through Friday, or reserve tickets online at

With Los Angeles as its home base, The Filharmonic consists of vocalists VJ Rosales, Joe Caigoy, Trace Gaynor and Barry Fortang, vocal bass Jules Cruz and beat boxer Niko Del Ray. Unique in their musical talent and cultural diversity, the six-piece group of Filipino-American youngsters was featured on NBC’s hit musical competition, “Sing-Off,” and they performed with the first “Sing-Off” national tour.

They have shared the stage with Linkin Park, Black Eyed Peas and Penatonix in addition to an appearance in “Pitch Perfect 2.” Their melodic vocal style exemplifies an urban-esque hip hop sound with ‘90s nostalgia.
