BOSton Sings A cappella Festival

Taking place in and around the city of Boston, BOSS is a three day event featuring everything you’ve come to expect from an a cappella festival and more: an innovative spin on the collegiate competition on Friday, the exclusive LIVE presentation and announcement of the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, plus two days of workshops, and a professional showcase on Saturday night.

All are welcome – groups and individuals, singers and non-singers. Purchase an All-Access Pass for admission to the entire festival (including the workshops during the day), or just come to be a fan at the concerts by purchasing tickets to the Collegiate Competition and Pro Concert.

FAQs

A ‘masterclass’ is a session in which your group works privately with a BOSS instructor or instructors: a chance to receive real-time, constructive criticism from a cappella’s best and brightest! Masterclasses will be available all weekend during class times (Saturday 9:00-5:00, Sunday 10:00-12:00). Masterclass registration is part of event registration and the schedule will be released no later than a week prior to the event.

Certain limited-enrollment workshops and all masterclasses require advance registration, which will open a few weeks prior to the event. We will contact all pass holders when registration opens as well as post details on how to register on our blog and on social media.

Lunch is not included in the pass, although the Saturday schedule includes enough time for lunch at local restaurants.

An All-Access Pass includes admission to both Saturday and Sunday workshops, the Friday evening Collegiate Competition, the Saturday evening Professional Showcase and all afterparties.

Tickets are on sale via Ticketfly. Please see the Tickets section of the website for details.

No, only individual tickets or passes are available to purchase using the CASA Membership discount. If you have some members of your group who are paid CASA members and would like to receive the discount, they can purchase their tickets individually.
