Frequently Asked Questions
How Does the Contest Work?
VOCALOSITY’s “Aca-Performance of a Lifetime” contest is an opportunity for local communities to get their local a cappella groups excited about the upcoming VOCALOSITY tour by presenting an opportunity to perform as the “opening act” for their VOCALOSITY engagement. Contestants must submit a 1-2 minute video recording of their a cappella group performing any contemporary song and upload to YouTube. Contestants may make the link public or unlisted. Just email the YouTube link to: Info@VocalosityOnTour.com and the submissions will be forwarded to the Long Center to curate their own collection of local videos online. The YouTube links will also be shared on the official VOCALOSITY YouTube channel as a playlist organized by city. 3 finalist videos will be selected by the local markets and sent to the creative team of VOCALOSITY who will determine the winner for each participating engagement.
What Will The Winner Receive?
For markets participating in the contest, the winning group will be able to perform a maximum of 5 minutes at the top of their local engagement that will serve as the “opening act” for VOCALOSITY. In addition, the winning group will receive a few comp tickets to their local engagement to share the evening with their family and friends. The amount of comp tickets will vary per market. The song selection(s) must be approved by VOCALOSITY in advance to avoid any duplication with the VOCALOSITY program.
How Long Does the Contest Run?
The contest will launch on Wednesday, October 7. Videos must be uploaded and submitted no later than December 1st at 12:00PM CST.
What is Vocalosity?
Vocalosity is the all-new live concert event that celebrates the wonder of the human voice from the creative mind of a cappella guru Deke Sharon (vocal producer for Pitch Perfectand The Sing-Off). This fast-paced production features 12 dynamic voices singing some of today’s chart-topping hits in brand-new arrangements too incredible to miss.
No genre of music is off limits in the world of a cappella and Vocalosity will explore them all – from tenth century Gregorian chant and classic choral, to barber shop quartet and bouncing doo-wop all the way to The Beatles and Bruno Mars. Combine that with movement and choreography from Sean Curran (Stomp original cast member) and you have an exhilarating evening of song unlike anything you’ve ever seen or heard, live on stage.
It’s the aca-perfect concert experience!
