A Quick Note About the East Coast Summit

Wow! I have been inundated lately with questions about the East Coast A cappella Summit. If you've written me, thank you for your email, and please allow me to briefly respond here and now... First of all, CASA is honored at the tremendous interest expressed in the summit. Our producers and army of volunteers work very hard to organize a fabulous event each year, and your continued interest in the event is a tribute to their hard work. On behalf of them, thank you. And kudos to Jonathan, Diana, Marty, Christina, and so many others past and present.
