After being sidelined for two years, Verdugo Hills Chorus was once again delighted to host the 16th A Cappella Scholarship Festival (ACSF) this past Saturday. However, this year it was a video festival rather than live & in person. Baby steps, right?
Sixteen schools submitted two songs via video. We had a large screen set up and our three judges met with us and evaluated each group. With the sponsorship of the wonderful John C Hench Foundation, ACSF awarded cash prizes totaling $88,500.
Next year’s festival will indeed be live & in person on Saturday, April 22. There’s money to give away to school vocal programs, so make sure your LA area schools apply next year!
