Voices will rise at the end of September.

The Ohio Union Activities Board and Ohio State’s Acappella Alliance are slated to bring a cappella group Pentatonix for a performance Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. in the Archie Griffin Grand Ballroom.

The quintet took the spotlight after winning Season 3 of NBC’s a cappella singing competition “The Sing-Off.”

Since the 2011 win, Pentatonix — its name derived from a musical scale of five notes per octave — has released two albums filled with the group’s covers of Top 40 hits of past and present, as well as a Christmas album and several singles. Popular covers by Pentatonix include Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” a medley of Daft Punk hits and Christmas carol “Little Drummer Boy.” The group, consisting of Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstie Maldonado, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola, is set to drop its third album on Sept. 23.

Ticket information for the concert had not yet been announced Tuesday evening.
