      Hi, a cappella fans!  We've got a good couple of months coming up! 
       
      Both m-pact and Kickshaw have concerts on Friday, Feb 23rd.  That's probably TODAY, depending on when you read this.  :)  See details in the concert calendar below.
       
      The Harmony Sweepstakes are on Saturday, March 17.  There are seven groups competing: Eclipse, Fretless, Kickshaw, Mockingbird, Rescue, Vocal Tangent, and Voce.  This show always sells out, so get your tickets now!  It is on the same night as the Take 6 concert, so you'll have to decide which one you want to see most.  Just make sure you see one or the other!  Support a cappella music in all its forms!
       
      Two Seattle groups are holding auditions.  The audition notices are at the bottom of this mail.  m-pact is also holding auditions for a new powerhouse tenor.  See their website at http://www.m-pact.com for contact information.
       
      Snippets from November's Washington A Cappella Showcase can be heard at http://www.openharmony.org/showcase.  That page also has information on where to purchase video tapes of the show!
       
      The next Open Harmony, our all a cappella open mic, is scheduled for Sunday, April 1st.  Details at http://www.openharmony.org.
       
      And on to the calendar.....

      ================
            AUDITIONS
      ================
       
      ONE GOOD ALTO NEEDED to complete an aggressively eclectic, mixed a cappella quintet. A soloist with style, soul & emotion. A part-singer with excellent pitch, blend & sensitivity. Commitment, humor & reading music are also necessary. Audition info: Steve (425)778-6778 or motenko@....
       
       
      (The group that is rising from the ashes of Canvas is still looking for an ALTO and a HIGH TENOR, so here is their audition notice from last time...)
       
      With the breakup of vocal jazz octet Canvas, the Northwest is again without a professional acappella jazz group.  While Canvas is gone some of its members had too much fun singing this challenging and entertaining music.  If you would like to join us in keeping the vocal jazz tradition alive call James Bacher at (206)229-4417 or Karl Hillstrom at (206)329-0710 to set up an audition appointment. We look forward to hearing from you.
