ACF 2013: October 12 in Chicago, IL
ACappellaFest is one of the newest stars in CASA's stable of events, bringing everything you love about SoJam, LAAF, BOSS, and VoCALnation to the heart of the Midwest. Join us in Chicago this October as we descend upon The Windy City for a weekend packed with workshops, performances, and fun!
Hosted at the University of Chicago by Men in Drag
Stretch your brain on Saturday as you take in a day of workshops taught by the who's who of the international a cappella community in addition to an amazing showcase of Midwest a cappella. As though that weren't enough, Saturday night brings a professional showcase featuring groups even your mom has heard of. Join us for workshops, masterclasses, and discussions all designed to help you or your group hone your skills on and off the stage and get your group to have the best year ever (and that's not an understatement). Grab your all-access pass for all of this as well as a few other surprises that are sure to pop up along the way. (Can you say acabombs?)

If the networking hasn't been mentioned, it's because it absolutely goes without mentioning at any and all CASA festivals. This festival will give you an opportunity to make friends and connect with people on a global scale. ACappellaFest is bringing CASA to the Midwest. Will you be there?
