Craig Simonetti

Craig Simonetti, arranger, distinguishes himself with award-winning settings of contemporary music for numerous vocal ensembles. He has won awards multiple times in the ICCA and ICHSA for Outstanding Arrangement for the Entire Set. Craig’s arrangements continue to be heard in his a cappella group, Blacklight, and his former group, The Hexachords, featured on Season 2 of Sing It On! on Pop TV, as well as in ICHSA sets from groups in his area.

He specializes in educating young a cappella performers, using his expertise in vocal pedagogy and beatboxing to conduct workshops for groups in the greater Boston area. Blacklight, a vocal ensemble he co-founded with Diana Galeano, delivers high energy a cappella performances of dance music that emphasizes beatboxing to their audiences. David Longo, the CEO of The Vocal Company, writes that his beatboxing “will shake the fiber of your being.”

Craig has his BMus in Vocal Performance from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and is pursuing a Master’s degree in Vocal Pedagogy at The Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
