A Cappella Armageddon!!

ABOUT A Cappella Armageddon:

An exciting new Competition for Collegiate A Cappella Groups Presented by Bristol Recording Studios

Bristol Recording Studios, New England's premier recording studio, with 25 years experience working with a cappella groups, presents A Cappella Armageddon, New England's newest a cappella competition! The first annual A Cappella Armageddon incorporates the best of LIVE a cappella performances and the thrill of cutthroat competition to reward one group with national recognition and some amazing prizes! It seemed like a good time to bring a fresh, alternative approach to the arena of a cappella competition, so the team at Bristol Studios created A Cappella Armageddon!

Every group that registers will get their chance to prove themselves in a live performance preliminary round held at Bristol Recording Studios in Boston in front of a judging panel of vocal and a cappella professionals and a cappella fans. Groups can also have their fans vote online to bolster their chances of winning!

"We've worked with so many a cappella groups over the years and we seem to work with more every year, we wanted to give back to the a cappella community. This also offers an opportunity for groups to win a substantial amount of recording time doing something that they love," says Jason Blaske, studio manager of Bristol Recording Studios. "We're really excited about this competition. It provides provides a fresh alternative to the many great a cappella competitions out there and it's really cool that we're able to host the Final Showdown at the Middle East, which is such a historic rock club."

"A Cappella Armageddon is the newest collegiate competition offering Boston area a cappella groups a great opportunity to perform and compete for some fantastic prizes!," says Amy Malkoff of CASA (Contemporary A Cappella Society of America), "Good luck to all the groups!."

If you think your group has what it takes to battle with the best and want a shot at some amazing prizes, read on and find out more below.

We look forward to seeing you in the A Cappella Armageddon arena!
