Alaska A Cappella U

Welcome to school! This year for Girls and Guys!

Alaska A Cappella U is celebrating 11 years of a cappella music! This Alaskan event is for young women and men in middle and high school to explore the excitement and joy of a cappella singing. This one day music festival will focus on the exciting elements of the modern barbershop art form: singing four-part a cappella harmony in the style of musical theater.  The grand finale will be a performance by the festival chorus on the Alaska Sound Celebration Fall Show.   AND THIS YEAR, FOR THE FIRST TIME, the a cappella experience will be in mixed chorus, the girls and guys will be blending their voices together for this wonderful a cappella event!

Special Guests - The Newfangled Four

Our special guests this year bring so much experience to AAU.  They are the 2018 Barbershop Harmony Society 6th place finalists, the 2013 International Collegiate Quartet Champions, and the 2013 FWD Quartet Champions. Check out their website here.  These amazing singers will be be working with both our chorus during the day, and they are special guests on the Alaska Sound Celebration Fall Show that night.   We are very excited to welcome them to AAU!
