Arden Concert Gild presents
University a Capella
Saturday, December 5 - 8 PM - $15 ($12 members and students) Groups rates for
10 or more.
Inspired by the recent Ben Folds album of such groups performing his music (Ben
Folds presents University a Cappella), this concert will include pop, rock,
jazz and Broadway songs done by:
The Deltones from University of Delaware (video here )
What began as a group of friends who loved to sing together back in 1991, has
since evolved into.... ummm.... a group of friends who to sing together in 2009.
Through many transformations and personnel changes, the essence of the Deltones
remains the same today as it did when it first started 18 years ago. The
Deltones have never forgotten that this group is friends first, singers second.
(From the Deltones website - let me add that these folks can sing!
Off The Beat from University of Pennsylvania (video here )
Off the Beat is an award winning group that blends vocal harmony with Top 40
rock. Renowned for years for groundbreaking albums, Off the Beat performs to
large crowds at the University, the Kimmel Center and other regional venues.
The Deaftones from Westminster Choir College (video here )
Many students already find it hard to juggle homework and extracurricular
activities. Try being a member of Westminster Choir College's renowned a
cappella ensemble, Deaftones. Solely run by the group's 14 members from a
variety of majors and classes, Deaftones not only arranges its own music but
also administers its own rehearsals as well, and has been an active pop a
cappella group at Westminster for five years now.
With its recent win at the Mid-Atlantic quarterfinals of the International
Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) at Rutgers University on March 6,
Deaftones advanced to the semifinals but didn't place. This is an outstanding
accomplishment for such a new ensemble.
Tigertones from Princeton University (video here )
With a constantly expanding repertoire ranging from traditional ballads and jazz
to barbershop, Broadway, classic rock, and American pop, the Tigertones continue
to entertain audiences of all ages and musical tastes. Whether performing for
kindergartners in downtown Trenton, elderly audiences in Palm Beach or teenage
schoolgirls in Switzerland, the Tones and their songs have universal appeal.
Many of these songs have been captured on the Tigertones' thirty recordings, the
most recent of which, entitled "Feelin' Good", was released in the fall of '08.
The Tigertones are Princeton's signature all male a cappella group. After sixty
years and thirty recordings, we continue to thrive and to keep alive a tradition
of "Good Friends and Good Music", sharing with audiences of all ages the
harmony, spontaneity, and brotherhood that have become our trademarks.
opening the show will be the JazzChords of Calloway from Wilmington's own Cab
Calloway School for the Arts ( video here )
The JazzChords of Calloway, the premier jazz choir of the Cab Calloway School of
the Arts, was established in 1997 when Bob McGrath (Bob from Sesame Street)
appeared at the Grand Opera House and needed a jazz choir to back him onstage.
Since then, the JazzChords have performed throughout Delaware, at the Hard Rock
Cafe in NYC, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Rays Starlight Cafe in Disney
World (Orlando), the Convention Center in Philadelphia and onboard the Norwegian
Dawn cruise ship. We have sung for the Governors of many states, US Senators and
Congressmen, the dedication of the NCC Courthouse, State Treasurer Jack
Markell's Swearing in Ceremony and we have sung every year since 2002 at the
Clifford Brown Jazz Festival which is the largest outdoor jazz festival on the
Arden University a Capella Festival - Saturday December 5, 2009 - $15 ($12
members) - Tickets available online! Group rates available for students and
Capital Blend is seeking new members!

variety of locations including: DCUnited Games, Washington Nationals Games, The

focus on covers of popular music from the '50s through today.

Dear Mid-Atlantic A Cappella Fans and Friends,
I hope everyone is having a good holiday season!
First and foremost, in case you have not heard, last year's Mid-Atlantic Regional and Nationals champs MAXX Factor made it to the finals of NBC's a cappella competition "The Sing-Off" (http://www.nbc.com/sing-off/). They are one of only eight finalists competing. We are just tickled that A Cappella is finally getting the attention it so rightfully deserves in the national spotlight! The show starts tonight, so make sure to tune in!
(Way to go, ladies! We're rooting for you! Don't forget your friends at the Mid-Atlantic Sweeps! We need you to host next year's show!)
Speaking of which, here are the particulars for next year's show (entry information follows below):
- Date: Saturday, April 10, 2010
- Time: 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 5)
The Birchmere Music Hall
3701 Mt. Vernon Avenue
Alexandria, VA 22305
- Ticket Price: $35 plus Ticketmaster fees*
- How to purchase tickets: Tickets go on sale after Christmas at the Birchmere box office any evening there is a show or at www.birchmere.com.
* OK, so I can hear the collective screams of our loyal fans from here in Sweeps Central. Let me say that we fought very hard to keep the ticket prices down. That is why this announcement is about three weeks later than usual - we have been going back and forth with The Birchmere management on this point. Unfortunately, we were not successful, and it is too late to secure another venue. I know that this is a lot of money, especially in the current economy, but keep in mind that our show is at the low end of the spectrum when it comes to ticket prices for shows at The Birchmere. Their costs have gone up, and they need to make a buck like everybody else. The production team vows to do everything in our power to make sure you get your money's worth. We appreciate your understanding on this point…
(And no, I can't do a thing about those pesky Ticketmaster fees, either. :( )
So you want to throw your hat in the ring to enter? Here is everything you need to know:
- Entry Deadline: February 15th, 2010

Do you love to sing in a quartet?
Do you love it when the other 3 guys know their parts cold?
Do you love to sing with new guys at conventions, but are limited to polecats.
Are you the most prepared guy in your chorus?
If you answered Yes to ANY of the above – then its time for some EXtreme
Quartetting at the Atlantic Harmony Brigade weekend.
The Atlantic Harmony Brigade weekend is a very special weekend in August (It's
my favorite weekend of the year).. 124 quartet singers come together in
balanced parts– 100% prepared on 12 international caliber songs after 16 weeks
of individual preparation.
At times it seems like the combinations of great quartets is endless – I usually
sing all night – clocking in only a few hours of sleep for the weekend. It's
intoxicating when you have 12 great songs to choose from and 3 other singers who
just know their part..
After the event - when convention time comes, now you have all these new songs
to sing. This will be my 4th year – so I will have 48 fabulous songs to sing
with other Brigaders.

AM/FM is an a cappella men's ministry meeting in Gaithersburg. We are a multi-denominational/non-denominational group of Christian men who enjoy singing hymns and gospel in harmony. We're always looking for guys with a similar interest. |
We're a bunch of 40-60 year old guys, but we're not exclusive either to the high or low side of that. Most of our music is in the barbershop style. There're also a few patriotic songs, show songs, and some doo-wop. Any part will do. We have 9 guys now, and are probably most in need of either a solid high (I mean VERY high) tenor, or a pedal bass (WAY down below that pesky F). But if you're interested in serving, are able to sing reasonably well, can cover your own part with nobody else singing in your ear, and enjoy harmony, we'll take you!!!
By the way, no pulse required.

any formal education (particularly postsecondary) in music performance,
education, and/or technology is a huge bonus.
THREE: Supplemental Skills. You may have other vocal arts experience (vocal
percussion / beatboxing / spoken word / rapping / vocal effects / MCing / public
speaking / impersonations), any of which are a plus but are not substitutes for
ability to sing (see "ONE", above). Demonstrated stage presence, energy, and
charisma, however, are closer to requirements than pluses. You have the ability
to work and play well with others and contribute beyond learning and performing
music (this can range from organizational/business aspects to lugging gear
FOUR: Audition. You must be available for an in-person audition, and local to
Northern Virginia and the surrounding area, or committed to a frequent commute.
FIVE: If you are selected, you must be available to rehearse with the band a
minimum of one to two times per week (more as required). Our rehearsal locations
vary, but are usually within about 30 minutes away from downtown DC. You are
committed to prioritizing the band amidst your personal and professional
schedule for the purposes of furthering the act and remaining in the greater DMV
area for the longer term.

Posting this on behalf of an a cappella aficionado, really an aca junkie, who is
not local to DC but is planning on being here to support Singstrong, and who
should probably relocate to the Mid Atlantic area based on time spent doing a
cappella in the DC area to raise the a cappella bar.

We are delighted to announce the lineup for the 2010 Harmony Sweepstakes Mid-Atlantic Regional! Competition was extremely stiff this year – no doubt owing to the refreshing lift that a cappella received from the NBC Sing-Off! competition. As a result, we have a very strong lineup this year!
Returning to host this year from Baltimore is MAXX Factor. As you know, after winning the region last year, MAXX Factor went on to win the Nationals. They followed that up with a spot on the NBC competition Sing-Off!,where they did themselves very proud in a field of extremely diverse and talented competitors – all with a lot more than just four voices to rely on!
Here is the lineup for this year:
- DoubleShot! – The boys from Pittsburgh, PA are back for more hijinks in "Ohten"!
- Euphonism – Back with a new lineup are local favorites Euphonism.
- Fleur de Lisa – This quirky quartet from Durham, NC are prepared to take on all comers!
- Glorious – This Richmond, VA gospel quartet competed in 2006 and 2007 and we are glad to have them back!
- Lustre – This Sweet Adelines group from Baltimore wowed the judges last year and are back for another shot.
- Tonic & Gin – Returning for their 3rd year, these local faves are going forit again!
- Voices of Truth – Testify! This Contemporary Christian ensemble is ready to bring the fire!
- The West Side 5 – These newcomers to the Mid-Atlantic Regional from my old stomping grounds in NYC are smooth as silk!
