Why should I attend VoCALnation?

Learn, listen, meet new friends, be inspired, make your group stronger and tighter, be inspired by tons of great a cappella music, come home with more ideas than you know what to do with, and have an amazing weekend of a cappella!

What is CAL?

CAL is the Contemporary A Cappella League, a division of CASA. CAL is a membership-based association specifically for post-collegiate groups. CAL singers are some of the most passionate a cappella-devotees out there, balancing their love of singing, arranging, directing, promoting, recording and performing with the time constraints and demands of career and family.

Easy! You can become a volunteer for a CASA sponsored event simply by sending an email to virginia@casa.org that expresses your interest in volunteering.

What is a masterclass and how do I sign up?

A ‘masterclass’ is a session in which your group works privately with a VCN instructor or instructors: a chance to receive real-time, really constructive criticism from a cappella’s best and brightest! Masterclasses will be available all weekend during class times (Saturday 9:00-5:00). Please email Ben Stevens if you have additional questions.

Can I apply the CASA Membership discount to my whole group?

No, only individual tickets or passes are available to purchase using the CASA Membership discount. If you have some members of your group who are paid CASA members and would like to receive the discount, they can purchase their tickets individually on the CASA website. Make sure they indicate that they are part of your group, and we will have all of your group’s materials together for pick up at registration. Be sure to complete the group registration through the Tickets page on the VCN website, and simply omit the group members who will be registering individually.

Where should I stay?

We have worked out some discounts with local hotels for the weekend of the conference. Information about how to book using these discounts is posted here.

When registering, I had to provide the name of my group members, but the tickets I received all have the same name.

All attached tickets in the confirmation email will have the name of the ticket buyer. If you bought weekend passes, you will trade them in upon arrival for name badges which will have the individual names you provided.

I am now unable to attend. How do I get a refund?

Before purchasing tickets, carefully review your selection. Policies set forth by our clients, including venues, teams and theaters, prohibit us from issuing refunds after a ticket has been purchased. Regretfully, if you elect to make changes to your plans, tickets cannot be cancelled, exchanged or refunded unless the event has been cancelled or postponed.
