Elégie will present a live holiday concert at the Wiley building (2155 Miramar Blvd., University Heights) on Saturday, Dec. 18, at 7:30 p.m.

Founded in 2014, the male vocal quartet comprises four classically trained soloists and professional musicians who are Heights High alumni. Michael Hives (second from left in the photo) and Caleb Wright (at far right in the photo) graduated in 2009; Brian Barron (third from left in the photo) and Mist'a Craig (at far left in the photo) graduated in 2011. All were members of the Heights Acapella Choir, Heights Singers, Heights High Barbershoppers, Heights Gospel Choir, and Heights Honors Ensemble.

They have performed at some of Cleveland's most notable venues, including Karamu House, Cain Park, Nighttown, and Jacob's Pavilion.

For this special concert, the group will perform a holiday repertoire, celebrating the spirit of the season with original music, as well as pieces from composers ranging from Bach to Boyz II Men. Local jazz musician and Heights alumnus Phillip K. Jones II, who has accompanied the group since 2015, will perform with Elégie on Dec. 18.

The concert will be free, with the audience invited to make a free-will donation to help raise funds for the group's spring 2022 New York City tour.
