Recognition from the A Cappella Community

Earlier this month, the list of nominations came out for the 2011 A cappella Community Awards, which recognize the best of the best in the eyes of those who know best. Members of the a cappella community create categories and nominate groups and individuals alike for the past year’s best efforts.

A Cappella Records (ACR) is deeply honored to celebrate the many nominations our artists received from their most esteemed and knowledgeable peers.

Especially of note are On The Rocks (from the University of Oregon), Rhythm & Blue (from Duke University), and professional sensations The House Jacks who garnered a whopping nine nominations each. Many of our clients received some form of recognition, though, due to their immense talents and stand-out performances (both recorded and live).

Congratulations to all of the nominees!
