a call for vocal jazz singers-BURNING a cappella singers!
- Hello all...
I know you.
I know you sit in your choir rehearsal thinking, "Man, you know,
wouldn't it be cool if I could sing in some really wild place, like
the desert, with a few other people who love to sing, and just roam
the desert town, serenading unsuspecting desert people?"
Well, I'm here to tell you that it IS cool. And there are already some
people doing this. We are called Acaplaya. We are burning man's only
vocal jazz ensemble and we are getting prepared for our tour to Black
but we are not a complete group yet. We need a few more singers. In
particular, we need possibly 2-3 other women and a vocal
percussionist. Below is the criteria: PLEASE READ!
1. Prior singing experience a must, preferably in the vocal jazz/a
cappella genre. Must be able to sing inner harmonies either by reading
charts and/or learning via midi files.
2. PREFERABLY live in the bay area (we rehearse and memorize before we
get out there) or close enough to get here for 2-3 pre-playa
3. Willing to have and be at set performance times once we are out
there. meaning someone who can be somewhere at a certain time, on the
4. ready for some serious gift giving via the sound of our voices!
We are in need of a good, solid vocal percussionist as well. this
person could potentially sing ONLY VP if they didn't read or sing
harmonies. Or both...
Acaplaya is a total miracle every single year we do this. From crazy
last-minute serendipitous meetings on the playa to intimate camp
kitchen serenades, the work we do out there is so special. If you are
interested, please email me right away. We plan to have a set group
within the next few weeks. then rehearsals, then we go.

I look forward to hearing from you very soon!
