We are very proud and excited to announce that Wisconsin's largest A cappella festival is back and better than ever! Now in its 7th year, this festival has provided a non-competitive performance and educational opportunity for hundreds of directors and students from around the United States. Registration is now open for you to be part of this great experience.


This year's event will be held in the newly renovated Port Washington High School Performing Arts Center on April 1st and 2nd, 2022. With a focus on networking with other groups and directors and working with nationally recognized directors, you will quickly find out that this isn’t your normal festival. Here’s what the festival includes as of this year:

Every group will receive a 45-minute masterclass from one of the top clinicians in the country based on either musicality or staging (your choice). A second masterclass is available for an additional fee.

ALL groups that register will get to perform on our state-of-the-art sound system in the newly renovated Port Washington High School PAC.  All performances will be mixed by professional sound technicians and lighting designers. (A perfect time to record your students).  All performances will be stereo recorded and available upon request as well. 

Mini performance rooms will be available for groups to have the opportunity to have 1- on - 1 exchanges with other parts of the nation and network and learn from each other. 

We will be taking professional photos of your group on stage. Each group will get a few of these for free to use for promotional purposes with the option to purchase additional photos.

The environment is collaborative, friendly, non-competitive, and fun!  It is open to groups of all ages.

We hope that this workshop and festival will fit into your schedule for spring. Please fill out the Registration Form to reserve your spot.  Please note that your spot will not be fully reserved until your full payment has been turned in. Once you fill out the form, there will be a grand total of your payment sent over to you in about a week. This year, there will be only 25 groups accepted in order of receipt of your registration with others going on a waitlist.
