"Like Pitch Perfect, but better"
Edinburgh University A Cappella (EUAC) has been the society success story since its creation in 2014. Our aim is to encourage students to get involved, get creative, and improve their a cappella singing.

Our mixed, girls and boys groups are led by enthusiastic musical directors (MDs), and we're always looking for new talent. Members will have a range of abilities and experience, singing a variety of genres and songs from Lollipop by the Chordettes, Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5, to the epic Game Of Thrones theme. We run a number of workshops for members and non-members throughout the year to improve skills and promote a cappella music.
Despite only being officially formed in 2015, we have already performed at a number of events, including a private ceilidh, several fundraisers, and the 2016 EUSA Activities Awards where we won Best New Society. Our success didn't stop there as we made a storming debut at the Scottish A Cappella Championships in St. Andrews, winning recognition for Best Choreography and Best Vocal Percussion.

Edinburgh a cappella-ella-ella, ey-ey-ey...
We will be holding a Come Along & Sing workshop on the 16th September 2016 for people to get a feel of what we do and who we are, followed by auditions from the 21st- 23rd September. But we're not just looking for singers. If you can rap, beatbox, or just love making music, then any talent is welcome.
When it come to a cappella, you are the music.
