Do you want to improve your singing? Learn some new arranging skills? Listen to a wide variety of a cappella groups? Or just hang out with like minded vocal harmony heads? Then you need to attend the A Cappella Summit.

The original and largest is the West Coast Summit, held every November in San Rafael, in Marin County just over the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. This year's performers include M-Pact, The Edlos, Kitka, Four Voices, Virtuose, Social Experiment, One Of Each, Out On A Clef, Overtones, Sam Rogers, Clockwork, Mosaic, Threshold Choir, Peninsula Harmony Chorus, Smorgaschord and more.

Classes, seminars and workshops are lead by Dave Stroud - Gabe Rutman - Jon Pilat - Andrew Chaiken - Joey Blake - Ed Cohn - Jessika Diamond - Larry Detwiler - David Saslav and more. The event is the weekend of Nov 8 / 9 and usually fills the 2,000 seat Frank Lloyd Wright designed auditorium.

The East Coast Summit is held in Boston a week earlier and this year features All About Buford (with Wes Carroll), Ball In The House, Blue Jupiter, Cadence, Duwende and Five O'Clock Shadow.

And now there is a new event in Durham, SC called the SoJam A Cappella Festival who are presenting Da Vinci's Notebook, No Joe, Blue Jupiter, 4:2:Five, Sean Altman and Andrew Chaiken.
