A Capella Unplugged- Special Open Mic Night Event
May 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Music Makers will hold a special twist to our normal Open Mic Nights by bringing A Capella Unplugged to Waynesboro!
Franklin County Visitors Bureau (FCVB) is seeking talent. Performers, age 2 to 102, are invited to bring their talent to A Cappella & Unplugged Open Mic Night at Music Makers in Waynesboro, PA on May 8 at 7 PM. There is no participation fee and interested performers are encouraged to sign up on the FCVB website. The winner of the open mic automatically moves on to Round One of the A Cappella & Unplugged musical competition, held at the Capitol Theatre on June 22, 2019.
A Cappella & Unplugged began in 2015 as part of the living history and light show, remembering the rebirth of Chambersburg after Confederate soldiers burned the town in 1864. It celebrated the spirit of the people that chose to rebuild the community.
Round One of 2019 A Cappella & Unplugged will be held at the Capitol Theatre on June 22. Six contestants will move onto Round Two—the Semi-Finals–where the public can like their favorite contestant on Facebook. The top three acts move into the Finals. Finalists perform live before 1864 Burning & Rebirth. The public selects the winner, and the winner receives $500.
The Franklin County Visitors Bureau invites all to explore Franklin County Pennsylvania and enjoy the history, arts, recreation, natural beauty, fresh foods and warm hospitality of communities like Chambersburg, Greencastle, Mercersburg, Shippensburg, and Waynesboro. Franklin County is located just north of the Mason Dixon Line and is an easy drive to Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh. Discover more.
