We’ve reached Episode 25 (!) tonight with a woman who excels in many avenues of a cappella. Whether it be on stage with Musae or creating some of the best recorded a cappella out there, Angela Ugolini stands out. And she’s just getting started.
After the interview, Rachael recaps her recent trip to Japan, which of course included a little a cappella!
We are back with the first episode of 2020 with none other than Lisa Forkish! From Divisi, to Vocal Rush to HIVE and even more in between, Lisa is a champion of inclusivity in the a cappella community. Whether it be through the many years of work with the Women’s A Cappella Association, being the driving force behind WeSing, writing original music, or being a constant mentor and coach to all, Lisa’s work is bringing us all a deeper level of connection and understanding.
Owner of Viridian Productions and owning the stage with Musae, Mel Daneke is changing the game. Studying Vocal Performance, Audio Production, and Music Education at Ithaca College, Mel got her a cappella start with Premium Blend. She’s gone on to tour the world and has landed tracks on all of the major compilations.
This week Rachael chats with guest Amanda Newman, Executive Director of Varsity Vocals! The collective wisdom of women in leadership roles in a cappella is tremendous and this episode is another great example of that.
Amy Engelhardt spent 13 years as the sole female member of Grammy-nominated vocal “band without instruments,” The Bobs, winning numerous ASCAP songwriting and ACA vocal performance awards for her writing, arrangements and vocals with the band.
