I acepted an invitation to attend this musical event mainly because i wanted to share a fun evening with friends -- but I was blown away with the music. I am not a music major and only know what I like and enjoy, and Octarium was such a pleasant surprise. The music was lively, soul-searching, spiritual, fun -- and my emotiona ran the same gamut.

I look forward to spending another evening with Octarium -- and my friends!!!

Octarium is a group of very talented individuals. I personally know Brady! I have seen him put on the spot to lead a group thru a song to finish the oncore ALL by himself without any back ground music. My husband is a drummer for Mid Life Crisis of KC band which is my only musical background but Octarium is a completely different type of entertainment. Style, organization, dedication and outstanding performance is what you witness when listening to Octarium. The vocals are so projected that it gives you goose bumps just to hear this group perform! This group has enducated me on what acapella is!

I don't believe I've ever been to a concert that moved me more than those of the a capella group, Octarium. They are so beautiful............the music perfect........and the singers so captivating. An amazing experience that has reduced me to tears several times. Lovely. I've sung their praises to all my friends.

My favorite Octarium concert was at Drury Stone Chapel in 2010. The program was a selection of songs that were of a popular nature and singers voices became the instruments. The incredible sounds, complete with textures and tones that mimicked elements of strings, woodwind and brass were such a delight. As you looked at the crowd, they were fully engaged--smiling, tapping or singing along. It was a magical evening and as people were leaving I heard them ask when they would be back.
The most notable thing of the group if the obvious pleasure they derive from the performance itself and the natural poise and balance they achieve with their voices. Each voice has a strenth in itself as shown in some of the selections that had solo vocals within the text, but they seemed to blend together into a smooth and elegant sound.

I would change the location of their practice and performance area by moving it closer to my home.

Within the Kansas City area are many musical organizations. Only one, however, offers small-group acapella signing, octarium. Anchored by the bass-baritone Brian Winters and moving through the voices to the soaring soprano of Ashley Winters, this, group consistently provides the highest quality of vocal music. As a small group, it does not require vast financial resources; on the other hand, it shoud not be ignored merely because of its size. Having attended many of Octarium's concerts over its eight year existence, I feel that my financial contributions help keep this wonderful music alive. Their skill and enthusiasm brings so much to the audience that it would be a pity if they could not get the financial backing thay they need.
