Franklin County Visitors Bureau (FCVB) is seeking talent. Performers, age 2 to 102, are invited to bring their talent to Acappella & Unplugged Open Mic Night at Coyle Free Library in downtown Chambersburg on March 8 at 5 PM. There is no participation fee and interested performers are encouraged to sign up here. The winner of the open mic automatically moves on to Round One of the Acappella & Unplugged musical competition, held at the Capitol Theatre on June 22, 2019.

Acappella & 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 Acappella & 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.
