A Capella Academy 2020


My name is Maddie Adams, I am 17 years old and I am from Mansfield Connecticut. I am so thrilled and grateful to have been accepted into A Capella Academy, a 10-day vocal A Capella camp held in Los Angeles. Only the top 13% of students are admitted, so I was completely humbled to have been selected to work alongside less than 100 kids equally as passionate about music as I am!

From what I can remember, I have always been involved in music. At an early age I attended summer musical/acting programs and once I went to middle school I started singing in a choir. Ever since fifth grade, music has been such a healthy outlet for me and my outgoing charisma. I love making music with my choir because there is something so beautiful and unique about sharing similar passions with others.  I plan to study Music Education at Western Connecticut University in the fall of 2020, and I am so excited to continue growing and learning as a young musician!

I decided to audition for A Capella Academy because I love taking on new challenges and experiences. After watching just a few videos about the camp, I was so eager to audition. I thought, what was there to lose? I was shocked as to what this camp has to offer in just 10 days, and again, am so thrilled to have been accepted. 

Tuition in all comes to $1,995 (not including airfare to and from LA from Boston). My goal for the next few months is to raise enough money where I do not have to put any financial strain on my family. I work two jobs and have been working on meeting my own personal goals, but anything will help! If you are unable to donate, do not hesitate to share to spread my goal on any social media platform: Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter!

Thank you so much!
Maddie Adams
