The weekend of November 2-4 will mark the tenth annual SoJam a cappella festival. Over the years, SoJam has become the Contemporary A Cappella Society’s signature event, and one of the best-known occurrences on the a cappella calendar. So what will those who attend SoJam 2012 hear?
Friday, November 2, will see six college groups compete. This year boasts a new elimination format. Each group will sing one song in round one. Four groups advance to round two, at which point each will sing one more sing, with a particular emphasis on visual performance. Round three calls for each of the three remaining groups to deliver its most innovative performance. And then there’s round four, in which the final two groups will each get to perform two songs for the chance to take home the gold.
