The Best Original Arrangement Award is dedicated to the memory of a good friend and fan of a cappella music, Mr David Lichtman (1955-1999). A long-time patron of the Harmony Sweepstakes, David felt a special attachment to this particular award. His friends and family are proud to support the A Cappella Foundation by establishing this award in his name.
