VoCALnation 2013 – legitimately the hottest a cappella festival of the year! –  has come and gone.  Hundreds of a cappella singers and fans engaged in enlightening classes and conversations, enjoyed thrilling acabombs, a showcase of CAL groups, and a professional concert, and reveled in the shared love for music.  My family and friends that amassed in Philadelphia have since […]

A Stronger Family of Singers

I couldn’t even begin to describe to you the incredible things I’ve seen in the past few months.  From Los Angeles to DC to the streets of Boston – high schools, colleges, professionals, amateurs.  It doesn’t matter where or even who, but the clear commonality is music. In Los Angeles, it was my pleasure to […]

Welcome Andrew, DC Collegiate Diplomat

I don’t remember exactly when I first met Andrew.  That’s probably for two reasons – 1) my memory is terrible, and 2) I’ve seen him at too many events to really pinpoint which one I saw him at first!  I go to a lot of a cappella events – festivals, shows, competitions, etc.  When I kept […]
