Welcome to A Cappella and Show Choir resource page for CCDA. I will try and make a few suggestions which might be of some help. If you have any questions or need further resources for your specific program, please reach out to me.
When looking for repertoire, not much will be published by traditional locations and companies. By time they obtain licensing for a tune, the song is a few years old. For the most up-to-date selections, many arrangers self-publish their arrangements. Below is a list of great arrangers and their contact info.
