16th Annual

The Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival, the premier American showcase for vocal harmony music, celebrates its 16th year in 2000. The annual national competition draws from hundreds of vocal groups from around the country with regional competitions in eight cities. The winning group from each festival is flown to perform in front of celebrity judges and a sold out house of enthusiastic a cappella fans at the National Finals.

1999 Chicago Champions

Chicago Voice Exchange

Chicago Voice Exchange have been entertaining and confusing audiences for over 8 years-- from corporate to school events, from low brow to high (and even uni-), their insouciance and self-deprecating humor leaves a trail of smiles and broken dishes wherever they go. Winners of the 1995 and 1997 Midwest Harmony Sweepstakes, they just missed a bronze in Synchronized Swimming at the last Summer Olympics. CVX is Andrew Blendermann, Joe Dennis, Tim Eaton, John Milne and the ubiquitous Bryan Chadima.
