WELOME TO EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY A CAPPELLA SOCIETY
Who are we?
We are a group of people who love singing, harmonising and having fun together. Founded in 2014, we have grown into six groups: three all-female, one all-male and two mixed groups. Three groups compete against groups from other universities, and all of our groups perform in and around the university, as well as show off to each other at our showcases! If a cappella isn’t already niche enough for you, we also have two barbershop quartets, one mixed and one all-female, who enjoy throwing their jazzy harmonies into the mix!
Do I need any experience?
Don’t worry! We don’t expect or require people to have any formal singing experience, or to be able to read music. If you have a passion for singing and love singing with other people, that’s more than enough! Our members range from those who have only sung in choirs to those who have only sung in showers, and our mixed musical backgrounds make it even more wonderful when we put our voices together to make something beautiful.
What are the groups like?
All the groups choose their own repertoire, so there’s often variation in the style of music across them. Generally speaking non-competition groups rehearse once a week, but if competition is what gets you going, our comp groups rehearse two or three times each weekly on average.
Other than remembering our lines, words and choreography, we love to have socials and get to know each other outside of our groups. We like to think of ourselves as a big family and always look forward to welcoming new members! Besides our more casual socials we do host a ceilidh, a ball and an open mic night. However, due to government restrictions these cannot yet be confirmed for this academic year. To find out more about our society, check out our Instagram: @eduniacappella and our Facebook: Edinburgh University A Cappella Society. Feel free to send a message on either platform if you have any questions and we’ll be happy to answer!
