LOOKING FOR GROUPS

"I am hoping to find groups who are willing to come visit my school to inspire my new a cappella choir. I am a first-time director working with first-time singers. Our older group has about 12 kids, grades 6-12, and we are honestly struggling because many of the young men at our school won't sing, thinking it is "uncool." I hope if they hear an experienced group that we will get more guys involved. It is a Christian school located in Anaheim, CA, and we would welcome any style of singers but are especially interested in traditional hymn-type groups (mostly because WE can't do vocal percussion or jazzy stuff ourselves). Please let me know if your group is willing to be a blessing to the kids at our school. Email me (Kim Williams) at kimnclan@sbcglobal.net Thank you for your consideration!"

IF YOUR GROUP RELEASED A CD THIS YEAR...

...make sure to submit it to the CARAs (Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards)! Submissions are due no later than January 1st. For more information and submission guidelines, visit www.casa.org and click on "Awards Programs" on the left menu bar.
