LHS to Host First Ever Syracuse Area Youth A Cappellla Fest
Thursday, February 26, 2015
The first-ever Syracuse Area Youth A Cappella Festival (Say-Aca-Fest!) will bring the electric sounds of four-part barbershop harmony to Liverpool High School on Saturday, February 28.
The Spirit of Syracuse Chorus (Sweet Adelines International), in conjunction with the Liverpool Central School District Fine Arts Department and the Barbershop Harmony Society, are hosting the event, which is open to all youth singers in middle school, high school and college (up to age 23), as well as music educators throughout the state. Participants will spend a full day sharing the best of a cappella music, learning more about barbershop harmony, and finally performing during an evening concert that will feature the Spirit of Syracuse, the Say-Aca-Fest girls' and guys' youth choruses, a combined youth chorus, and some very special guests from local schools and colleges.
The evening performance, to be held in the Liverpool High School Auditorium at 7:30 p.m., is free and open to the public. However, a donation of $5 is suggested to help organizers offset the program costs so that the daylong event can remain free to all student participants.
