Dear Aussie A Cappella community,

With the current and evolving situation involving COVID-19, we have unfortunately decided to cancel all our live events (in Brisbane and Perth) for AUSACA 2020, in the interest of public health and safety.

Though our events are around 6 months away, we felt it important to act early, before any travel arrangements for groups to head to AUSACA were locked in. Additionally, with self-distancing and self-isolation periods happening we’re aware that this will impact rehearsals for groups for an unknown amount of time.

Unfortunately this also means that the wonderful Deke Sharon will no longer be touring Australia in September this year.

As such, we will now be making AUSACA an online event for 2020 and Deke Sharon has kindly offered to still be part of our expert panel giving written feedback to groups who enter the online event!

AUSACA online will still include our new showcase divisions (non-competitive division with feedback from experts) and our competition divisions (for groups vying to be AUSACA Champs) for both School and Open aged groups.

Any Application fees already paid can be transferred over as a deposit for the AUSACA online entries instead.

As circumstances are changing quickly, please be patient with us as we re-build the website and work out the fine points.

Stay safe, and look after each other.
