YOUR HOME FOR A CAPPELLA

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.

SoJam

Held in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina in November, a cappella groups and enthusaists gather to explore a cappella surrounded by Southern charm.

Los Angeles A cappella Festival

Take a break from the winter blues and soak up some sun in an a cappella oasis as the a cappella world gathers in the Los Angeles area.

Boston Sings

Spring beckons from Boston and a cappella groups descend to collaborate and innovate.

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).
