An invitation to perform in the US
- The Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival will be presenting its
24th annual events in 2008 and are seeking vocal harmony groups who
would like to perform in one of our concerts. Organized as a
competition, the winners of each of the 8 regional contests are flown
to San Francisco to compete in the National Finals to be held on May 8.
We would like to invite any interested a cappella groups from outside
of the US to submit an application to our Festival. Groups of all
styles are welcome with the only criteria being that there must be no
more than 8 singers.
There is lots of interest in a cappella music in the US and there are
thousands of groups performing regularly across the country. Like in
all the music business itâs always tough to gain initial exposure for
your a cappella group and is especially difficult for groups from
overseas. The Festival is a great opportunity for you to sing to a
whole new audience, to gain new fans, have fun and to meet other vocal
harmony singers. Although a competition the event is always very
friendly and hospitable with some of the most enthusiastic audiences
an a cappella group could ever wish to perform for.
Please note that we cannot provide any transportation or accommodation
to the regional events. If you were to win that regional then we would
pay the equivalent of the round trip airfare from the city where you
won to San Francisco plus two nights accommodations.
We have had several overseas participants over the years including the
2003 National Champions The Idea of North from Australia and we are
always interested in hearing groups from other places.
