The summit supports innovators, vocalists who stretch the boundaries of what the human voice is capable of. It is a place of community where singers not only produce stunning vocal creations, but we also show each other just how the magic works. The summits showcase pop, soul, barbershop, doo-wop, R&B, hard rock, new age, funk, comedy, world music, punk and nearly anything else you might think of. There's nothing we love better than the challenge: "You can't do THAT a cappella." Oh yeah? We'll see about that. At the summit, we laugh, we commiserate over our shared problems, we poke gentle fun at one another and we explore that powerful, sometimes even spiritual experience of creating something infinitely greater than the sum of its parts, the very definition of true harmony. The East Coast A Cappella Summit is sponsored by the Contemporary A Cappella Society (CASA) with generous support from our kind donors. You Can Become a Donor! It takes money to bring this whole thing together, and we need your help! Almost everyone involved with the Summit is a volunteer and many of the performers perform at a loss. They are donating their efforts at or below cost for you! Your ticket charges are absolute minimums to cover expenses. Of course not everyone can give, but if you have even a small donation to spare, CASA and the Summit need your support!
