Our program is structured in a unique fashion, allowing us to provide a beautiful and full harmonic sound with as few as four performers, or as many as thirty. Our co-directors, Molly and Lindsay Ryan, utilize their years of experience as professional singers, dancers, and actresses, including roles on Broadway, national tours, in professional regional musical theatre, film, television, commercials, and as award-winning show choir performers. In addition, the duo has been arranging and performing multi-genre a cappella music for many years in the groups “Little Ladiez” and “4 of Hart’s.”

Performances with the girl groups include boot camp finalists on X-Factor, and at many impressive venues, including the Key Arena in Seattle, LA’s Dodger Stadium, multiple appearances at Staples Center in Los Angeles before and during Lakers, Clippers and Sparks games, at the Home Depot Center, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, and more.

 RockNacappella’s staff is additionally well-supported by coaches and technical advisers.
