A full house of 2,000 a cappella fans were treated to a wonderful night of top notch singing at the 20th Annual Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival National Finals. This event is probably the most prestigious showcase for a cappella groups, not only in the US, but possibly worldwide with groups performing from Australia, Canada and Puerto Rico. All the performers represented their regions admirably and thanks also to the support of the audience we look forward to another 20 years of great a cappella singing.

And the results are:-

1st - Chapter 6 (Chicago)
2nd - Clockwork (San Francisco)
3rd (Tie)
Mosaic - (Mid Atlantic)
Inpulse - (Rocky Mountain)

Audience Favorite - Chapter 6

Best Original Song - "Obsession" - Marcus Hanson - Inpulse

Best Original Arrangement - "Theme And Variations On It Don't Mean A
Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing". - arr. Mark Grizzard - Chapter 6

Here is the complete set list

And by happy coincidence Chapter 6 are today releasing their latest recording "Swing Shift", which is currently on sale at Primarily A Cappella. Listen to the winning arrangement of Theme And Variations On It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing" which is on this release.
