The Annual Northwest A Cappella Festival was founded in 2010 and has been hosted by different local university a cappella groups every year. For the fourth year in a row, ANWAF will be hosted by the Contemporary A Cappella Musicians' Institute (CAMI), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization! The program this year will allow for your group to be critiqued by a cappella veterans and receive personalized feedback, attend clinics/workshops led by the pros, network with the local a cappella community, and the selected eight groups will perform on a stage that is fully equipped with sound and lighting for an a cappella-loving audience in the evening concert!
Every year, the ANWAF hosts strive to put together a lineup that is inclusive of local high school, collegiate and semi-pro a cappella groups. The selection process for this year is on a first-come first-sing basis. Although we would love to host ALL of the groups that apply, there are time and space constraints that we must adhere to. If your group does not end up attending, you will still have the opportunity to register to attend the workshops and concert as an individual (more information soon)!
Please feel free to contact the event coordinator, Amanda Tran, at firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions, concerns, or inquiries.
The CAMI team is ecstatic that you are interested in ANWAF, and we can't wait to see you all in April!
