The wait is over, and it is my pleasure to post today to introduce the A Cappella Blog’s 2010 publication season! We are kicking off this season with some exciting new features:
The ACB ICCA Bracket Contest: Forget March Madness. This year, show off your collegiate a cappella knowledge by entering our ICCA Bracket Contest! Entry is free, and the prizes are very real. More details will be available shortly.
The A Cappella Blog Group Directory: We are proud to present the most comprehensive and up to date directory of collegiate a cappella groups anywhere on the internet. This directory features search and sort options that make it easy for you to find groups from around the world. Check it out here.
We will continue our features from years past, including ICCA Event Reviews, interviews with top groups, Tuesday Tubin’, Measure for Measure, How To, The Best I’ve seen, The Importance of, and Dos and Don’ts. In addition to these returning features, we have some fantastic new content on its way
The Round Table: We have asked strong voices from the a cappella community to weigh in on a major topic related to collegiate a cappella from their own unique perspectives. Panelists include Mickey Rapkin, Deke Sharon, Chase DeLuca and many others.
200 Reasons To Love A Cappella: In a feature that will continue for years to come, we will be chronicling a long list of reasons why a cappella is great, one-by-one.
Give It the Old College Try: Collegiate a cappella groups have the chance to undertake a variety of endeavors, projects and adventures. Give It the Old College Try highlights opportunities a group may have overlooked or not thought of up to this point.
The Run Off: Across the country, and, indeed, around the world, there are numerous a cappella groups who have chosen the very same songs to perform. In The
Run Off, we bring together three to five different renderings of the same song, and, in the name of sharing different visions, and for the sake of friendly competition, puts them side by side for readers to vote for their favorites.
In addition to all of this, the ACB is continuing to do its part to make sure that a cappella, and, indeed, music in general, lives on. Through a partnership with VH1’s Save The Music Foundation, we will be selling wristbands all season long, with all profits supporting music education programs. Visit our Donate to Save the Music page for more information on how you can help.
Here at The ACB, we are incredibly excited to launch our fourth publication season. So fasten your seatbelts, add us to your bookmarks or RSS feeds, and get ready for one heck of a ride!
