National A Cappella Convention

If, like me, you have experienced the benefits of including contemporary a cappella in your choral program, I invite you to attend a new, transformative event—the first annual National A Cappella Convention April 24-25 in Memphis, TN.  Featuring the godfather of a cappella himself, Deke Sharon, as head clinician and master of ceremonies, NACC features professional concerts, showcase performances, group masterclasses, reading sessions, director roundtable discussions, industry exhibitions, and a unique, educationally focused high school competition.   


So what could NACC do for you as a director?

  1. Individualized director-specific learning track with focused classes.

  2. Reading sessions featuring new and exciting arrangements from the best in the business.

  3. Roundtable discussions wherein you can interact with and learn from the most experienced and successful a cappella educators in the country.

  4. Industry exhibits providing a way for you to interface with a cappella arrangers, producers, live sound engineers, and more.

  5. Over 10 concert performances from the finest high school, collegiate, CAL, and professional ensembles around (maybe including your own!).


Why should you also bring your group with you?

  1. Every group that attends will receive a free, 50-minute masterclass with one of the top a cappella clinicians in the country.   A few lucky groups will get Deke Sharon himself!

  2. While you are in classes, so are your students, in their own performer-focused individual learning track.

  3. Apply to perform, and you could have the chance to present a 25-mintue concert set in a brand new, state-of-the-art performing arts center.

  4. Apply to compete in the high school competition, and you could win a fully produced album from The Vocal Company, our presenting sponsor (a $10,000 value).

  5. Experience the mind-blowing musicality of Musae, our professional showcase performers.


NACC is being presented in cooperation with The American Choral Directors Association
