Heather Newkirk is from snowy, sometimes beautiful Buffalo, NY. She is a proud alumna of Syracuse University's Main Squeeze and proud co-founder of Volta. In four years, she served as business manager, public relations director, music director, arranger, vocal percussion, and choreographer (Yes, all of those). She also served as the first Director of Public Relations of the A Cappella Council at Syracuse University. Her performances and arrangements have landed her Best VP and Best Arrangement at ICCAs, and a slot on Voices Only 2013. Currently Heather serves as a Project Manager of Social Media & Communications with CASA, directs a high school a cappella group in the Boston area, teaches fun workshops at CASA festivals, and happily arranges for various groups. In her not-so-spare time, Heather can be found geeking out over video games or delicious food, all the while clutching her beloved iPhone. @heathernewkirk
Kristin LoBiondo was raised in North Carolina. Her passion for singing began when she could finally reach the piano keys, and she quickly became involved in anything where she could make music. She earned her BA in Vocal Music at Elon University, but her giant leap into the a cappella world didn't begin until after college when she joined her first group and was introduced to SoJam. Kristin is currently a member of two DC-based groups, Snowday, and Vox Pop. Since 2009, Kristin has been working with CASA Events and counts down the hours from the end of one festival to the next! @klobo21
