The Contemporary A Cappella Society is thrilled to announce this year's gathering for its amazing festival in the Southeastern United States:

SoJam 2009: Aspire!

A cappella fans, group members, professionals, and clinicians from across the United States will converge to Durham, North Carolina on November 6-8, 2009 for the seventh annual SoJam A Cappella Festival.  The Friday and Saturday night concerts will be held at the historic Carolina Theatre in downtown Durham, and classes will take place on Saturday and Sunday at Duke University.  Headlining the event this year will be The House Jacks, the original "rock band without instruments", and Eclipse, a funky, talented, and soulful gang of singers from Utah.

The Collegiate Competition on Friday night will feature six top-notch a cappella groups from colleges across the country.  You can find out more information about competing at:  We'll be offering a load of phenomenal prizes to this year's winners.  So snag your group's tickets, and get your submission videos ready.  It could be YOU on stage!

During the day on Saturday and Sunday, we will gather at Duke University for a morning and afternoon full of technical seminars, sit-down classes, stage performances, and interactive master classes.  Information about each of this year's workshops can be found here:  The biggest and best names in the a cappella world will be present to give you professional advice on everything from vocal technique and arranging to group marketing and album production.

This year we will also have a specific track of classes catered to members of CASA's own Contemporary A cappella League (CAL), an exciting new way to connect with others and sing the music that you love once you have graduated college.

Saturday evening marks the Professional Showcase featuring The House Jacks and Eclipse.  After providing expert teaching, instruction, and insight during the day, our professional acts will take the stage and show everyone how to truly rock.  If you have yet to witness this incredible event at SoJam, we guarantee you that it will leave you completely inspired to aspire.  Simply put, this is a show that you do not want to miss!

Tickets for SoJam 2009 will go on sale this Saturday, August 29 through the SoJam website, as well as on at  Book your group's tickets now, and you'll have first dibs on an instructor for your master class.

One question remains: how will YOU aspire this year?
