ENGAGE WITH THE COMMUNITY
Compete with other scholastic groups, learn from a cappella professionals, and soak in performances from legendary vocal groups.
Connect with the CASA community at one of our regional festivals.
Our third virtual festival last season, BOSS 2021, left us all wanting more! Read more about all of the happenings in our wrap-up post here.
OUR AWARDS PROGRAMS
There exists an entire community of music-makers that dedicate their time and/or careers to making music with nothing but the human voice. For over 20 years, CASA has been presenting awards to recognize excellence in a cappella music. The annual Contemporary A cappella Recording Awards (CARA) and the annual sing compilation recognize the best of recorded a cappella music. Excellence in video production is recognized at the A cappella Video Awards (AVAs).
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE REAL GROUP!
2019 LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
Our programs and initiatives are driven by volunteers and funded by generous donors. Even if you are just getting introduced to this unique community and aren't even sure which way to spell it, you are welcome! Ready to get involved? (Bonus hint: it's a cappella, not acapela.) Whether you have time, energy, talents, or monetary resources to contribute, find your place in our inclusive, diverse community of a cappella fans.
