Want to get involved in the CARAs?
- CASA is expanding the CARAs nomination procedures.
The CARAs - the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards - celebrate
the best a cappella released around the planet each year. Awards are
given in multiple pro categories including pop, jazz, barbershop,
religious, classical, holiday and more, and categories for high
school and college groups.
Each year, a small number of CASA executives wade through everything
that came in. This year, we've decided to open it up a little to the
knowledgeable among the community at large.
We're looking for a few volunteers in the Bay Area with free time the
first week of January who are willing to drive into the city to our
office (Polk St.) and listen to lots and lots of great a cappella
albums. No, these volunteers do NOT need to be singers!
Please feel free to pass this message along to people you sing with
who don't read this list.
If you're interested, please drop me a note stating:
- What kind of hours you have available (ie, daytimes, evenings, both)
- What genres you are most interested in being on the committee for,
or if you're amenable to being a jack-of-all-genres.
