Evynne Hollens

Seriously? How cool is it to have a real Princess share a little royalty with us at the festival? There have been a lot of Disney Princesses over the decades, but only Evynne Hollens has been them all!

Evynne Hollens is a singer & vocal coach primarily known for her online videos & live performances. With over 18 million views on YouTube, 9 million coming from her viral hit "Evolution of the Disney Princess" she releases weekly videos; frequently popular & Disney music video covers as well as her voice lesson series entitled "How To Sing". A native of the Pacific Northwest, she resides in Oregon with her husband Peter Hollens and is a performer, artistic director & has a private voice studio. In college she co-founded Divisi - the University of Oregon’s award-winning female a cappella group, featured in the best-selling book & inspiration for the hit feature film “Pitch Perfect".

I'm so grateful and excited to have Evynne come share a little of her vocal royalty, and more with us this year. It will be fantastic!

Special Guest 2015 - Peter Hollens

Peter Hollens, YouTube star,
a cappella recording artist, and great guy!
I can't tell you how excited we are to have Peter with us!

At the festival, Peter will be sharing his story, his music, answering questions and inspiring our young singers to reach for their dreams and to start reaching now!

For those of you who know him, I don't need to introduce him. Those who haven't yet been touched by his heart and music are in for a real treat. There are a lot of "great" things listed below that Peter is doing and has done, but to me the best things about Peter shines even brighter.

What I really love about Peter is how he has managed to keep a sense of humility and kindness to those around him during his climb to notoriety. Like in this photo of him, you can see that the love of what he does and the people around him shines even brighter than the dazzle of lights around him. If you get to chat with him, he is still a real person that sees you as a real person too... even though he is totally stinkin’ awesome!
