Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this gray Tuesday.

From Fox’s “Glee” to the “Pitch Perfect” movie franchise and beyond, a cappella has exploded in popularity. Vocalocity, a self-described "aca-perfect musical experience," brings together 12 performers who spin through a whirlwind of vocal music from Gregorian chants to modern pop hits. Deke Sharon, the vocal producer behind NBC's “The Sing Off” and the two “Pitch Perfect” movies, is co-creator of the touring show. MSU’s own State of Fifths a capella group will perform before Vocalocity takes the stage. An informal after-chat with the company will follow the concert. 7:30 p.m. Tickets start as $28/$15 MSU students. Wharton Center, 750 E. Shaw Lane, East Lansing. (517) 432-2000, whartoncenter.com.
