The District formed in Washington, D.C. in late 2012. A contemporary all-female a cappella group, The District embodies an empowered, energetic, and versatile sound through an array of pop, rock, country, and R&B covers. Characterized by complex arrangements, tight harmonies, fierce soloists, and crisp vocal percussion, The District performs throughout the DMV area at fundraisers, community and corporate events, and regional competitions. Most recently, The District performed at legendary music hall, The Birchmere, where they placed second and won “Audience Favorite” at the 2018 Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival.
In the Spring of 2016, The District announced a Kickstarter campaign to support production and recording of their first studio EP. The funds were successfully raised, and The District launched their debut EP, Onyx, on November 4, 2016. Onyx is available for purchase on iTunes and via The District website.
Opening the show will be Word of Mouth, winner of DC’s first annual “Aca-Challenge” a cappella competition, and a mixed all-vocal band with a passion for fun and innovative a cappella. Formed in November 2011 through Craigslist and – you guessed it – word of mouth, WoM’s members are drawn from some of the East Coast’s premier collegiate singing groups. With a repertoire spanning 50 years and a variety of genres, and the eclectic personalities to match, WoM elevates DC a cappella every time they take the stage.
