"This festival is a remarkable collection of committed and tenacious artists. We want to give the audience a window into the vocal disciplines that connect each," said Mr. Ross. "As the curator and driving force of the project, [Miss Fleming] has been with us from soup to nuts. A major challenge was pulling together key artists in each genre and planning the master classes that will be available to everyone. We're thrilled that we're looking at our A plan because all the artists we wanted accepted. Although some of the experts participating are not so well known by the general public as are the stars, they are tops in their individual fields."
"A cappella music can mean so many different things, depending on where it's from," says Garth Ross, the Kennedy Center's director of programming for performing arts for everyone. "When you see the doo-wop of the Persuasions, and then the gospel harmonies of Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, and then the throat singing of the group Aqsarniit,you see how much diversity there is and that this music comes out of very different contexts."
