Hey all! I am going to be judging this competition with Kristin Kreuk December 1-2. If you’re into music or people or “Smallville” or any or all of the above, come out and join us for the weekend! It’s going to be a rocking time! Hope to see you all there!

A Cappella Innovations is a festival being put on by my friends, the acappella group Simply Human, the weekend of December 1-2.

A Capella Innovations intends to “promote innovation, evolution and unity in the acappella community, as well as fostering an appreciation in the general public of what can be done with the human instrument.” The two-day event/conference/festival will include 11 different workshops of acappella techniques, constructive evaluations, and professional performances and networking and community-building opportunities, culminating in a celebrity-hosted performance of acappella groups.

The workshops will focus on vocal instrument emulation, arrangement techniques, voice (singing) techniques and vocal percussion and “beatboxing.” Participating groups will have the opportunity to perform for a professional judging panel that will provide rich feedback. A Capella Innovations will be a living, evolving process of talent sharing where, through the exposure to each group’s different techniques and approach, participants will arrive to a whole new level in their performance and experience of acappella music. The public performance at the end of the weekend will showcase the results of this mutual enrichment process.

    I missed A Cappella because I was stuck down in the basement all weekend. Does anyone know when B Cappella is being held? Maybe I can get to that one.
