Auditions for 2013 Harmony Sweepstakes

It's time again for a new season (our 29th) of the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival and we are as excited as always to discover new talent. Once again a cappella has enjoyed international exposure with the success of the recent hit movie Pitch Perfect. The movie showcased how fun a cappella competitions can be which is something we have known for a long time!

We are proud to have presented so many entertaining and talented groups and are looking again for groups who would like to participate. There are lots of great reasons to perform at the Harmony Sweeps including the pure joy of singing for such enthusiastic and appreciative audiences.

One fact we are very proud of is that 22 of the past 24 national champions are still performing today, most all in a professional capacity. Current champs Six Appeal have been keeping very busy since they won the National Finals with a full touring schedule and a top new agent.

As the inspiration for NBC’s The Sing-Off the Harmony Sweepstakes has been in the forefront of presenting and discovering top notch a cappella groups for almost three decades and we hope that this season your group can sing for us.

With the New Year comes new opportunity so come join the fun, you never know where it may take you.

2013 Schedule:-

Pacific NW (Olympia) - March 16
San Francisco – March 9
New York – March 30
Chicago - March 9
Mid-Atlantic (DC) – February 23
Los Angeles – April 6
Boston – April 14

National Finals May 18th

Regional champions win airfare and accommodation to go to San Francisco and compete in the National Finals in front of two thousand fans along with celebrity judges.

Interested groups should contact us soon as the application deadline is approaching. As long as you have 10 minutes of great a cappella music then we would love to hear from you!

Is your group larger than the 8 members we allow? How about creating a smaller group or two inside your ensemble? Maybe one for the boys and one for the girls? The rule is actually no more than 8 singers on stage at any one time so one can rotate singers during the set.
