What others say about ONAIR

„ONAIR defines the future of Pop A Cappella music – the best of Performance Art. They are the perfect combination of voices and personalities. Their instincts seem to be spot on from the team they create to the repertoire in which they invest. I think the universe just beckoned for them to be born. To me, they are the “Cirque De Soleil” of A Cappella Pop music – completely intriguing, and something you never want to end.” -Kim Nazarian (New York Voices)
