Since forming Tonic Sol-fa 16 years ago, Mark McGowan, Greg Bannwarth, Jared Dove and Shaun Johnson have established themselves as one of the nation’s hottest a cappella ensembles, performing more than 150 live shows each year throughout America. Tonic Sol-fa has shared the stage with such artists and entertainers as Jay Leno, Shawn Colvin and Garrison Keillor. The Minnesota-based group—now welcomed for its tenth annual holiday concert at Orchestra Hall—is also featured each year on a nationally televised PBS Christmas special. Tonic Sol-fa has been voted into the Midwest Music Hall of Fame, and in 2010 it won an Emmy Award in the Musical Composition/Arrangement category for a song performed in a Toys for Tots public service announcement. Its albums, which include the holiday CDs Greatest Time of Year and On Top of the World, have sold more than two million copies. The group’s newest recording project is March of the Kings.
