Obligatory sound rant!  The sound was really good.  ... hmm, that’s not much of a rant.  How about this:

A Day in the Life of a Harmony Sweeps Contestant

I was lucky enough this year to be in a group competing in the Harmony Sweepstakes. The Mid-Atlantic region - where my group (Tonic and Gin) competed - has been a melting pot of some of the best a cappella groups around the world, not just the U.S. Groups like Cartoon Johnny call this region home, and groups like Vocaldente, who won it all last year, have come to Alexandria, Virginia for a chance at the prize.

Harmony Finals 2009 - A Fan's perspective

I sat on this review for about a week too long, so hopefully it will still find curious eyes.  I was not sure what I wanted to say about the experience as this was my first time watching the Finals but my second review of a Harmony Sweepstakes show.  I feel it pointless to say "this group was great", "this group was fantastic", etc.

The astonishing, magnificent Harmony Sweepstakes

Contemporary a cappella would not be what it is today without the Harmony Sweepstakes.  Do you have any idea how influential the competition is?  How vital it has been to the growth and dissemination of contemporary a cappella? What started out as a regional festival 25 years ago has become an annual national competition.  Just the longevity is reason to take note.  25 years.
