CASA Board President, Julia Hoffman, served for the 5th year as the Director of the Contemporary A cappella Recording Awards. Jon Pilat, a singer, arranger, vocal percussionist, and previous CASA board member, served for the 5th year as the CARA Coordinator. Joseph Bates, a RARB reviewer, past President of the Alliance for A cappella Initiatives, and professional arranger oversaw the mixed collegiate awards this year. The coordinators also chose 38 fans and performers of varied backgrounds to spend months considering each of the albums submitted to the CARAs. Anyone holding a current or former affiliation with a group or album under consideration is not allowed to take part in the consideration of that award. To the nominators: Thank you all for your many hours of work! You are much appreciated!

When asked whether a gay comedy scene exists, Rubin explains, “There is a gay comedy community, if for no other reason than there are suddenly a lot of gay comics. I think we’re like gremlins, you throw water on us and we multiply.” I bet this community has some great “Men are like this, other men are like this” knee-slappers. small business logo - company logo - corporate logo
