Street Corner Symphony brought their unique brand of acapella music to the TEDxNashville 2016 stage. In just 12 short minutes, the group played vocal ping pong, covered Nickel Creek, and slipped in some Justin Bieber. It's obvious why they are such reality singing darlings.
Street Corner Symphony is an acappella group based out of Nashville, Tennessee. They became internationally known in 2010 after becoming runners up on Season 2 of NBC’s all vocal competition, The Sing-Off. These southern gents quickly won over Sing-Off judges Ben Folds, Shawn Stockman, and Nicole Scherzinger and an NBC primetime audience after demonstrating their unique laid back, yet dynamic style of acappella.
The group consists of two brothers; Jeremy Lister and Jonathan Lister; along with Adam Chance, Kurt Zimmerman, Kaleb Jones and Mark McLemore. Since their success on The Sing-Off, Street Corner Symphony has been making records and performing for audiences across the country and around the world. Their music covers a wide range of style, appealing to young and old alike. Highlights for SCS so far include touring with Ben Folds and Jay Leno, performing at Tony Romo’s wedding, and bringing their show overseas to Italy.
