Dave Sperandio

Dave Sperandio, or "dio" as he is sometimes called, has been working with a cappella music for 20 years as a performer, producer, and promoter. His work has helped to define and support the contemporary a cappella world for more than a decade.

Dave is the founder of the Alliance for A Cappella Initiatives, and creator of the acclaimed SoJam A Cappella Festival, as well as the 'Sing' vocal compilation CD.

Since founding the a cappella production company diovoce in 2000, Dave and his clients have made more than 100 appearances on numerous "best-of" compilations, and have earned many CARA nods, both as a performer and while "behind the glass". He has been called the "Timbaland of a cappella" in the Gotham-published aca-documentary "Pitch Perfect" (now a major motion picture), and has appeared in featured interviews with the Wall Street Journal, Mouth Off!, and Acatribe.

Dave has performed with numerous ensembles, directed the UNC Clef Hangers, and has toured and recorded with vocal tonic, transit, and Almost Recess. His work has afforded him the opportunity to work with many talented recording artists, including Ben Folds, Brendan James, Anoop Desai, Pentatonix, Peter Hollens, Lindsey Stirling, ARORA, and Street Corner Symphony.

In 2006 Dave partnered with several fellow producers to form VocalSource, which represents the most comprehensive network of vocal music studios in the world.

In 2008 Dave merged the AACI with CASA, and joined the CASA Board of Directors as Directo
