The Edlos, a popular Bay Area-based contemporary a cappella quartet, bring their farewell tour to the Woodland Opera House at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 30. The Opera House is at 340 Second St. in downtown Woodland.

The Edlos, who are all classically trained and rooted in operatic and concert performance, are known for their powerful voices as well as their balanced combination of artistry and musicianship on the one hand and a broad comic approach to live performance on the other. The group has performed with the likes of Waylon Jennings, Crystal Gayle, Ray Charles, Chicago, the Temptations, Lou Rawls, Bernadette Peters, Tower of Power and many others, and can be seen in their own special on PBS “The Lonesome Pines Special.”

The Edlos were formed in 1989 when a group of four classically trained singers got together to explore a broad range of music and musical styles. From early on, it was clear that a unique chemistry existed among the quartet. Their musical journey took them from early Gregorian chant to bluegrass and country, from Motown to rock and roll and finally to original compositions that incorporate elements from their entire array of musical styles.

They are remembered equally for their musicianship and for their infectiously funny and entertaining stage presence. All of this is heightened by their use of props, wigs, hats and costume changes.

For the past 18 years, the Edlos have been performing continuously at festivals and concert halls throughout the United States and Canada. They are proud to have appeared at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and have won numerous awards for their recordings and compositions. They are the only group in the history of the Harmony Sweepstakes, the most highly esteemed of all a cappella competitions, to win all three top prizes: first place, best arrangement and audience favorite.

The quartet’s farewell tour, “The Best of the Edlos,” is a revue composed entirely of original a cappella arrangements by the Edlos themselves. Included are bluegrass, country, Motown and rock and roll.

All reserved seats are $17 and may be purchased by calling the Woodland Opera House box office at (530) 666-9617 or online at http://www.woodlandoperahouse.org.
