Harmony is great. Singing is great too. People with beautiful vocal instruments are great. But the idea of grown men singing together in an a capella group doesn’t seem so great. It seems pretty off-putting, what with all the smiling and snapping that seem to be mandatory. Perhaps the names of some of the groups add to the possibly repellent nature of these groups. Come on, Rockapella? SoCal VoCals? Thanks to comedy legend Dick Van Dyke, though, those who might be leery of the instrument-free concert have a reason to be more accepting of the art form. His group, the reasonably named Dick Van Dyke and the Vantastix, is bringing harmonies they’ve been lifting for over a decade. If Dick Van Dyke is cool with vocal groups, then so are we. The Vantastix perform at the Winspear Opera House at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $38 to $110. Visit attpac.org for information.
