In the spring of 2012 Six Appeal acquired the title of National Champion at the National Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival in San Rafael, CA.

With members formally instructed in singing, music education, composition, and over 70 combined years of musical training and experience, Six Appeal brings a diverse arsenal of style and entertainment to the stage. In addition to performance, Six Appeal has a passion for spreading their knowledge of a cappella music to every audience, and an essential aspect of their mission is to empower young singers in their educational outreach program.

 ABOUT / HISTORY

Six Appeal began as a collegiate hobby. In 2006, the founding members decided to start singing together at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. It was a diversion from studies, fun with friends, and yes, maybe a way to break the ice with girls. Starting with a strong choral background and classical roots, they expanded their repertoire to the music of today, breaking new grounds with original arrangements of hit songs spanning the decades. Within three years, those former college freshmen were performing concerts around campus, winning a cappella competitions, and touring around the Midwest. By their senior year, they realized that when you have a good thing going with your best friends, you stick with it. In 2010, Six Appeal moved their home base to Minneapolis in order to turn hobby into passion. They began touring the country, delivering electrifying performances and teaching a new generation about a cappella with their curriculum-based Educational Experience. The Six Appeal roster now includes musicians from all walks of life, yet the young men continue to make friends and find fans where ever they travel. The group is very proud of their unparalelled success at the 2012 National Harmony Sweepstakes where they took home the awards for Audience Favorite, Best Original Song, and received the title of National Champions of a cappella music.
