Hello! My name is Carson Ripley ; I am a 16 year old from Orange County, CA. I auditioned for a competitive A Cappella summer camp in Los Angeles, California and have recently been accepted! I am one of 78 students to be admitted out of 588 auditions total— placing my audition in the top 13%. 

I have been singing for many years and love performing and sharing the gift of music. I am a Junior at the Orange County School of Arts in the Commercial Music Conservatory. 

I love A Cappella music and after attending a different A Capella camp last summer, was inspired to try arranging an A Cappella version of a song I liked.  I spent over 2 weeks arranging parts for the song, recording those parts in my little home studio, mixing all the audio, filming the video, and finally editing it all together. It was a learning experience I definitely won't forget.


One of my mom’s friends on Facebook saw this video and told her about the A Capella Academy and said I should try out.  I was excited to check it out and when I saw videos of performances from previous sessions, I was so impressed by the quality of the performers and what they were able to learn and create that I knew I had to try out.

I am so excited that I got in!!  

I hope I am able to increase my skills and learn how to be a better performer and A Capella singer.  I am also excited to meet and work with other talented young performers.  

The tuition of the A Capella Academy this summer is $1,995.  This is a huge amount of money for me and I am hoping to raise some of the cost.  

So I turn to you. 

If you were to take the time out to donate, it would be greatly appreciated. Whether you decide to donate one hundred dollars or five, I would be incredibly grateful to have help in paying this camp tuition. And if you are unable to donate, please feel free to spread the word and share this with your family and friends. 

I need to raise as much as possible by March 13th.  Thank you so much for your support! 

 To get a feel of what the camp is like and why I am so excited to go, watch the video below !
