This weekend, Syracuse University will host the Social Media and A Capella Conference. What does social media have to do with a capella, you ask? As it turns out, quite a bit.

In this weekend-long festival, SMACC will mesh the talents of SU’s own fantastic a capella groups together with the university’s very visible presence on social media platforms, namely Twitter and FourSquare. During the day, social media experts will present a series of workshops that will describe how to extend your personal or group presence into the social media realm. At night, SU’s own a capella groups Orange Appeal, The Mandarin’s, Groovestand, and Main Squeeze will face off in a battle to determine which group will open for Nota, a professional a capella group famous for their success on NBC’s The Sing Off.

Regardless of your field of study, SMACC is well worth checking out. There’s no better way to support this unique and exciting opportunity for SU. You can check out the full schedule of events as well as information on how to purchase tickets at http://smaccthat.com/.
