Lakeside A cappella Camp

Started as a joint venture between the Northern Blend Chorus (Harmony, Inc.) and Spirit of Syracuse Chorus (Sweet Adelines, International), the Lakeside A cappella Camp was created to offer both male and female singers a great weekend of music, fun, and memories to keep them singing for a lifetime!  The only camp of its kind in New York, the weekend is focused on all aspects of a cappella singing and performing, as well as introducing campers to the incredible world of barbershop singing.  Barbershop, hailed by Deke Sharon (Pitch Perfect, The Sing-off, and founder of the Contemporary A cappella Society) as “the black belt of a cappella music,” is a uniquely American art-form of 4-part a cappella singing championed by Harmony, Inc., Sweet Adelines, International, and the Barbershop Harmony Society.

Registered campers will be able to download sheet music and learning tracks soon after. You can also join our mailing list - email lakesideacappella@gmail.com - or join our Facebook group for all the latest!

Spend the weekend on the beautiful campus of Cazenovia College singing, dancing, making new friends, and learning from the very best in the business! Bring your choirmates, siblings, and friends this summer to Caz and find out what all the excitement is about!
