Hey everyone! This is Lindsey McGowen, Executive Producer of ACappellaFest 2013, with some very exciting information! The team is busy finalizing the workshop schedule and we will have some exciting headliner announcements to share with you very soon!
I can’t tell you how excited I am to bring ACF back for another year! The midwest has always been an a cappella powerhouse with amazing collegiate groups (such as our awesome hosts Men in Drag!), awesome post-collegiate groups and high school groups you would not believe were in high school.
One of the things we have been working on as an exciting new daytime performance and competition in line with our goals to make ACF your one-stop shop for all things related to helping your group achieve their goals this year. The midwest is an incredibly supportive community and so we are bringing premium performance opportunities for as many groups as possible. The Showcase is open to all groups, scholastic or otherwise. Groups registered by Friday, September 27, will have the opportunity to perform on the festival main stage for a live audience and a panel of celebrity judges who will offer immediate constructive feedback. In addition, the judges will give several special awards, such as outstanding soloist, arrangement, choreography, etc.
Stay tuned for more exciting news! We hope you will join us on October 12 in Chicago and help us help you get started for what’s sure to be an awesome year!
