You’ve been clamoring for it. We’ve been pulling all of the pieces together.
Bright, shiny, beautiful pieces.
Mark your calendars for November 8-10, 2013 and start making your travel plans to Raleigh, NC. Now in its 11th year, SoJam 2013 will return to the Duke Energy Center and the campus of North Carolina State University.
This year, SoJam welcomes two new leaders: Executive Producer, Dave Sroka, and Assistant Executive Producer, Brian Watts.
Dave Sroka, obsessed with music creation and performance since the age of 4, co-founded Raleigh, NC-based CAL group Cognitive Resonance, for which he currently serves as Creative Director, primary arranger, and performer. He first ventured into vocal performance in college at Virginia Tech singing with the university’s Concert Choir, small chamber choir Camerata, and Early Music Ensemble, but never stopped nerding out over the school’s contemporary a cappella groups. He also performs with Chapel Hill’s classical vocal ensemble Cantari and stays active in the local arts community via theater and musical productions, group coaching, and consultations. A web developer by trade, Dave founded and runs Robot Factorial, a mobile application and game development studio.
Brian Watts, a member of the SoJam team for the last few years, has been singing in various ensembles since age nine. Before graduating from NC State University, Brian sang with both the Concert Choir and Acappology. He was the music director of Acappology for three years and helped to release the group’s first album in 10 years. While attending graduate school at Duke University, Brian sang with Rhythm and Blue for two years, during which time the group won the SoJam 2010 Collegiate Competition. You might remember his performance. If not, here’s a reminder.
And, of course, we’ve been working with your festival headliners. Or, rather, THE headliners. Yes, it should definitely be preceded with a definitive article and some capital letters and perhaps even be shouted from the rooftops. And it will be. Expect that announcement to come one month from today.
So when can YOU get a bright and shiny piece of this excitement? Sooner than ever. Tickets go on sale July 1, 2013.
