Tonight on Talkappella, Brian and Elicia are with Business Casual, a Bay Area group that’s been experiencing a steady rise in the a cappella community – including two appearances at Carnegie Hall, wins at Harmony Sweepstakes and VoiceJam, and a trip to represent the US at Vocal Asia in Japan. Listen tonight at 8 pm Eastern/5 pm Pacific on acaville.org.
Tonight on Vocal HERspective we chat with Cassie Greene, a member of Business Casual. Even though this group isn’t a full-time endeavor, they’ve seen some incredible success- including a National Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival title, winning the VoiceJam Festival and earning a ticket to Vocal Asia, and two trips to the Varsity Vocals AcaOpen Finals.
Hear her unique perspective tonight on balancing a successful career and a cappella experience at 9:30 pm EST/6:30 pm PST on Acaville or the rebroadcast on Sunday at 10:30 am and pm PST!
A few new fun pieces for your aca-loving ears this week!
The long-awaited project from Ben Bram, Scott Hoying, and Shams Ahmed debuted this week with the release of not one, but two videos. A cast of 25 was selected from over 1000 auditionees and have created the a cappella only version of KidzBop meets the Mickey Mouse Club. Only way cooler. The group is expected to take on a tour in addition to their forthcoming album and lots more videos.
Fresh off their appearance at the AcaOpen, Aperture released this moving set of songs by Khalid, Mø, Sufjan Stevens, Billie Eilish, and Rihanna. This set received Best Original Arrangement after their performance at Carnegie Hall.
Tune in Monday at 8 pm Eastern (5 pm Pacific) to hear what they have to say! We’ll also rebroadcast this episode at 10 am & pm Eastern on Sunday.
