The Michigan A Cappella Council was created during the Fall of 2002 by Arts at Michigan, to provide members of the a cappella community the opportunity to discuss various issues including: MACfest, joint concerts, various collaborations, marketing ideas, and new project ideas. Currently, there are twelve student a cappella groups participating in the council.
Goals: The purpose of the Michigan A cappella Council is to serve the a cappella music community on the University of Michigan campus and provide a collective voice for campus a cappella groups. This organization is dedicated to utilizing its resources to foster learning experiences, services, provide a forum for discussion, and a sense of a greater a cappella community especially by the production of collaborative events, including A cappella Rush and the Michigan A cappella Festival.
Meetings: The a cappella council meets at the Arts at Michigan office every other Tuesday evening to unify and promote the U of M a cappella community. Representatives of each of the groups and the executive staff meet to discuss current collaborations and future ideas.
MACFest : Michigan A Cappella Council coordinates the largest a cappella performance on campus, MACFest. It is a magnificent concert showcasing all/most of the a cappella groups on campus. This year, the 8th annual MACFest concert will be held at the Rackham Auditorium on the night of November 5th, 2011 at 7:00pm. Tickets can be bought at MUTO.
