I just got back from SingStrong, an annual a cappella festival in Reston, Virginia.  It was a weekend full of classes, workshops and concerts with some of the biggest names in a cappella (including Pentatonix, winners of the Sing Off Season 3)!  There was also a great sense of camaraderie throughout the festival.  All kinds of people were there — middle and high school students just starting out with singing, members of college and post-college groups who came to learn the latest techniques and trends, and professionals at the top of their game.  All the classes and concerts were held at the same location, so there were plenty of opportunities for everyone to mingle and chat with each other.  To top it all off, all of the proceeds from SingStrong are donated to the Alzheimer’s Association, so it’s a fun way to support a great cause.

This was my second time at SingStrong, and my head is still spinning from all of this weekend’s events.  I will write more about SingStrong in the coming days.
