The fourth annual VoiceJam A Capella festival will take place at Walton Arts Center April 5-7. But this is not your grandmother’s a cappella. This is current music and old music made current by extreme vocal range and control, tight harmonies, sick beats and vocal percussion.

Produced in conjunction with Vocal Asia Festival, VoiceJam features a full weekend of a cappella, including workshops, concerts and an intense competition. Whether you want to compete, learn or listen, VoiceJam has something for everyone.
