To All Fans of A Cappella Music,
We are very pleased to announce the date and location for the 20th
Annual Harmony Sweepstakes 2004 Mid-Atlantic Regional! The event
will be held for the third year in a row at The Birchmere Music Hall
on Sunday, April 4th!
As many of you know, The Birchmere is a fantastic venue for seeing
live a cappella! Plus they have great food and free parking! The
Birchmere booked up earlier than usual this year, so we were unable
to get a Saturday night as we would have liked, but The Birchmere is
such an unusual and a cappella friendly venue that we decided to do
it there on a Sunday rather than a lesser venue on a Saturday!
As you may know, last year's DC Regional Champs The Idea of North
also won the Nationals! The bad news is that The Idea of North's
schedule won't allow them to make it from Australia to host the
Regional in 2004. The good news is that last year's hilarious
talented hosts and 2002 Regional champs The Tone Rangers have agreed
to host again this year! (And you may still get to see The Idea of
North in the area we are working on putting together a gig at
Birchmere for another time, so stay tuned!) We will also be having a
showcase performance by local favorites and event producers dcVocals
for the third year running!
