Chicago Harmony SweepstakesMarch 30, 2019
Come see the vocal competition that inspired NBC’s hit show The Sing-Off! Now in it’s 35th season, The Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival is the premier American showcase for vocal harmony music. The Chicago Harmony Sweepstakes is one of seven regional competitions drawing from the best vocal groups around the country. The winning group from the Chicago competition will earn the opportunity to compete against the other six regional champions at the National Finals held in San Francisco each May. Hosted by returning champions Due North (2018 First Place and Audience Favorite) and featuring two-time Chicago champion David Wilner (Blind Man’s Bluff, Fiveplay) as master of ceremonies.
The 2018 Chicago Harmony Sweepstakes took place on March 24, 2018 at Wentz Concert Hall in Naperville, Illinois. Here are the OFFICIAL RESULTS of the competition:
