What: HellaCappella, featuring a cappella singing groups from regional universities

When: 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 1

Where: Jackson Hall, Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts

Tickets: $12 general, $9 students; mondaviarts.org, 530-754-2787. Tickets at the door: $15 general, $12 students

A cappella singing will be showcased at the ninth annual HellaCappella, a concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 1, in Jackson Hall at the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts at UC Davis.

Presented by The Spokes, an all-female a cappella group at UCD, the concert is a collaboration among a cappella groups of all sizes from Northern California universities and beyond. Featured are the Men’s Octet from UC Berkeley, Cloud Nine from UC Santa Cruz and On the Rocks from the University of Oregon.

Last year, HellaCappella drew more than 2,000 fans to The Pavilion; this is the first time the concert has been presented in Jackson Hall.

The Spokes are the only all-female group at UC Davis. Founded in 2004, the group features 11 singers performing a wide-ranging repertoire, from top 40 (“Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift) to alternative (“Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes) to R&B (“I’ll Be Waiting” by Adele) to classics (“Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond). The Spokes’ latest album, “Kaleidospoke,” will be available at the show.

Proceeds from the concert will go to Teach For America, a national teaching corps designed to help schools in underserved communities. Last year’s HellaCappella raised more than $3,000 for the American Cancer Society.

Advance tickets are $12 general and $9 for students, available at mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787. Tickets at the door will be $15 general and $12 for students.
