5th Annual Bend A Cappella Festival
This February, vocal groups from across the Pacific Northwest will unite in harmony during the 5th Annual Bend A Cappella Festival at the Tower Theatre and Trinity Episcopal Church. It’s a weekend full of musical collaboration, constructive feedback and inspirational instruction; a supportive experience welcoming all groups no matter how long they have been performing. “It will be so exciting to hear all that talent performing together here in Bend!” Says Festival Director, Nancy Phillips. “After having the opportunity last year as assistant director to watch the competitors work and learn, I am especially excited to see how the returning singers have grown from their competition and master class experiences, and super thrilled to hear the new talent that will be coming to this year’s competition.” The weekend also welcomes one of a cappella’s newest super groups, NOMADIC, along with the ever energetic “father of contemporary a cappella,” Deke Sharon, and body movement specialist, Danielle (Ellie) Osterman.
