What is SoJam about, anyway? What can YOU get out of the festival experience?
Check out these 7 Reasons to Attend SoJam and see what you can expect:
1. The Performances
Experience mind-blowing performances by acappella superstars at the Professional Showcase. This year, internationally-acclaimed The Exchange and live-looping mastermind Kid Beyond join the stellar pantheon of past SoJam performers like The House Jacks, FORK, Pentatonix, Naturally 7, and MICappela.
2. The Scholastic Competition
Watch some of the best scholastic groups in the nation go head-to-head in the Friday night Scholastic Competition. Inspiring sets to come from our incredible 2016 Competitors: Florida State’s All-Night Yahtzee, UCF’s Gemini Blvd. and Voicebox, Boston University’s In Achord, and CMU’s Originals.
3. Workshops & Classes
Take your skills to the next level by attending a multitude of interactive workshops and instructive classes led by industry experts. Have your group paired with a Masterclass clinician and get the personalized feedback you need to elevate your arrangements and performances. You’ll want to take notes.
Get a chance to network with hundreds of other aca-enthusiasts and singers from around the world. Connect (or reconnect!) with aca-veterans, producers, the scholastic competitors, and even the professional performers. Keep the conversations going—after the show is the after-party!
Have suggestions for future festivals? Want to learn how to get more involved? Share your feedback at the CASA Round Table discussion; you can help make the next SoJam an even more incredible experience.
If you weren’t a performer in the Scholastic Competition, your group can still give a mini-performance for festival-goers at an aca-bomb. Gain exposure for your group, and get a chance to hear other groups too on your way to workshops and classes.
Spend a fall weekend bonding with your group and with fellow musicians in the Georgia capital. After twelve years in North Carolina, SoJam now calls Atlanta its home, and attendees still venture from near and far for all that SoJam has to offer. Ready for a road trip?
See you there!
SoJam is this November 18th–20th. With networking opportunities, educational workshops, and unforgettable performances all weekend long, you’ll definitely want to save yourself a seat. We invite you to come see and hear for yourself – it just may change your life.
