HISTORY

It all started with just one tweet…

avi

A Cappella Academy co-founder, Avi Kaplan had a simple idea: to create a summer camp where talented young musicians could come to learn and share his love of vocal music.  Seeing the prophetic tweet, Sing-Off arrangers Robert Dietz and Ben Bram immediately reached out to Avi and joined his effort to make the camp a reality.

Now, with two successful years behind them, the Academy is ready to once again open its doors for 2016! The plot of land has become a college campus, and the log cabin has become classrooms and dormitories, but the dream remains the same: to build a family, learning and working together to create world class a cappella music.
