- Hello A Cappella enthusiasts,
You should be a recipient of the "Colorado Songster" quarterly newsletter and
probably affiliated with the Colorado Vocal Jazz Society and/or CASA
Colorado. If you don't receive the newsletter and would like to, please send
your snail mail address and telephone to this email address.
The purpose of this message is to encourage you to provide information about
your activities, or those of a group with which you are affiliated, for:
(1) the Fall Colorado Songster (from CVJS), or
(2) the Contemporary A Cappella Society International Newsletter (CAN).
Basically, first priority information is for the calendars in these
publications and their websites, with information for short articles also
welcome. We would greatly appreciate your participation.
These newsletters publish at different dates, so right now we are looking at
information for October through January which you would like to see
published. The rule of thumb is that the preponderance of performing
information or performances be devoted to vocal jazz or contemporary a
cappella (CAC) with some consideration given to other formats such as
accompanied Vocal Groups, Barbershop, Gospel, etc. The next deadline for CAN
input is October 1 and for the Colorado Songster, September 15. You can send
digital information (including photos) to me at this address or, in hard
copy, to CVJS, PO Box 481232, Denver 80248-1232 (please let me know by email
if you have snail mailed information).
Meanwhile, here is the format in which we would like to get your Performance
Date (assume within next 4-5 months)
Name of Group or Sponsoring Organization and Name of Event
Venue (e.g. auditorium) and brief address

The Colorado Songster also publishes a "Classified Column" and welcomes
listings from any side of the equation: groups looking for members, singers
looking for groups or organizations looking for performance groups or
individuals. Please provide such information in the following format:
Category of need: as above

Short description of need
Contact phone and/or Email address.
If your group has any news to announce -- new albums, new members, awards,
media appearances or other tidbits -- please send information (and photos?)
along also. These may be published in the Colorado Songster or in CAN.
Don't put it off! NOW is your chance to get this free publicity. Thanks for
