Vocal Australia is the Australian Ambassador to CASA (Contemporary A Cappella Society of America) and has chosen to produce AUS-ACA after being inspired by the growth and talent of the international a cappella community. A community that is evolving and flourishing through participation and exposure to contemporary a cappella through programs such as the ICCAs (International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella) and the ICHSAs (International Championship of High School A Cappella) and the Voice Festival UK.
You may be aware that the ICCAs was the inspiration for the recent hit a cappella movie PITCH PERFECT. You may also be aware that an ICCA group provide the vocals for The Warblers on GLEE. You may even be aware that due to the rise of school and university a cappella groups overseas there is now a 100% a cappella TV show THE SING OFF that has aired 3 seasons on NBC (with a 4th on it’s way) plus separate seasons in China, France and Holland!
Let’s show the world what we’ve got!
