VOX, a unique spoken-word chorus, performs poetry as music. On June 29, 2011, they come to Lincoln Hall as part of  Mel Blanc Day celebrations.

This event is free.

VOX leader, Eric Hull, explains:

We will be performing the Mayoral Proclamation with our tongues firmly planted in our cheeks.  Combining the irreverent spirit Mel Blanc brought to his work with the regal tone of the proclamation — and throwing in some classic Looney, I say, I say, phrases — we will help give the occasion the joy and pride it deserves.

VOX performers participating in Mel Blanc Day @ Lincoln Hall: Bill Barry, Gary Brickner-Schulz, Eric Hull, Robin Mc Alpine, Sam Mowry and Jamie Rea.
