High School and Middle School Groups
The National A Cappella Convention, or NACC (n’ak), is the largest a cappella event put on by the A Cappella Education Association. The weekend long event offers your high school group the opportunity to:
- work one-on-one with one of the best clinicians in a cappella
- learn from top experts in areas like vocal percussion, solo delivery, group rehearsal techniques, social media strategies, and much more
- perform on $1 million in A/V in front of one of the most exciting audiences in a cappella
- network with colleagues and fellow students from all over the country
- be inspired by some of the best groups in existence today
- make new friends at our high school only social event
The entire festival is centralized on one campus, including Sparks Theater, a million dollar performing arts center.
You’ll get the chance to perform on The Vocal Company sound as well as a dedicated lighting, sound, and photography crew.
Every attending group will get a one-on-one masterclass from the highest caliber vocal arrangers and coaches.
Our schedule will feature brand new keynotes and workshops from top clinicians that can only be heard at NACC.
The non-competitive environment for high school groups at NACC is designed to encourage creativity and excellence without stress or anxiety. Over 60 groups from across the country gather in the beautiful music city of Memphis, TN at the centralized Briarcrest Christian School. Any director, singer, or group can walk away with a new outlook on topics such as contemporary a cappella arranging, group directing, audio engineering, performance, and so much more. At NACC, our goal is to bring people together through the power of music. Our mantra for 2019 comes from the words of our President, JD Frizzell.
