Emily Flanders



Emily Flanders has been with Varsity Vocals since 2008, and has served as Director of Adjudication, ICCA Midwest Producer, ICCA Northeast Producer, ICCA Central Producer, ICCA Great Lakes Producer, and as an Associate Producer for ICHSA. Emily has served as the Artistic Director and Competition Producer of CASA’s BOSS festival since its inception, inventing the festival’s unique competition format and expanding it over the last 10 years. An alumna of The Washington University Amateurs, Emily served as both Concert Coordinator and Group Coordinator while in the group. She is also the voice of the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, and she is happy to record your outgoing voicemail — even if it’s in Finnish. Emily is a proud resident of the city of Chicago, where she raises chickens, enjoys trips to the beach, and virtually never gets asked if that really was her on Sing It On.

That time Emily and The Amateurs recorded their cover of “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds with none other than the man himself. This recording appeared on Ben Folds Presents: University A Cappella!

That time Emily appeared on the head/voice podcast.


Literature, capes, art museums, St. Louis, Pilates, trampolines, people. Heels every day. Once spoke to Beyoncé on the phone.
