The A Cappella Blog will launch its new publication season in less than two weeks, on January 5, 2009. The new season will include guest columns from such luminaries as Varsity Vocals Executive Director Amanda Grish Newman and a cappella recording icon Bill Hare, a new recurring column by Duke University Out of the Blue's Nancy Cheng, and several other new features. We'll be posting just about every week day from January 5 through the end of May, so be sure to have us bookmarked, or add us to your RSS feed.
To hold you over until the new season, a few more bits of news:
