Scott Hoying, songwriter and pianist who has been performing since the age of 8. Following his graduation from Martin High School in Arlington, TX, Scott enrolled at USC where he joined the SoCal VoCals, a popular and accomplished campus a cappella group, but did not stay with this group. He later asked his friends, Mitch Grassi and Kirstie Maldonado, to audition for an a cappella show called "The Sing Off" (the 3rd season). They decided that they needed two more members, so they added Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola ( Avi for bass, Kevin for beatboxing). They called their Group </span>Pentatonix, as suggested by Scott. It is named after the pentatonic scale, a musical scale or mode with five notes per octave. The group believed that the scale's five notes matched their membership. They replaced the last letter with an 'x' to make it more appealing. They ended up winning the show, their victory earning them $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music

Currently Pentatonix travels all around the world to perform at sold out shows.

The youtube channel for Pentatonix (PTXofficial) has over 7,000,000 subscribers and 781,000,000 views.

Hoying, along with the rest of the members of Pentatonix are Grammy nominated for their "Daft Punk" melody under, Best Arrangement, Instrumental Or A Cappella.

Pentatonix's "That's Christmas To Me" Holiday album went Gold, and Platinum.
