A Cappella Society
Welcome to our aca-webpage! We are the award-winning Cardiff University A Cappella Society, Yes, just like real-life Pitch Perfect. We’re a super friendly and social bunch, always down for a boogie, and love to make music. Join us for another year packed with competitions, performances, and most importantly - a whole lot of fun!
Introducing our groups…
The Acappellads is our competitive group for male-presenting performers. Inclusive of all voice types, from basses and beatboxers to the highest tenors, the group combines high singing standards and choreography with a fun social calendar. The 'Lads' compete annually in the international A Cappella championship, the ICCAs, along with UK and society showcases. Featuring music from the likes of Bastille, The Wombats, Coldplay and Amber Run, they really are a great group to be a part of and, of course, listen to!
The DeciBelles is our female and non-binary competitive A Cappella group! They perform their own arrangements of some iconic music from Little Mix to Orla Gartland and take part in showcases and competitions all over the UK! The 'Belles' are known to be a fun and sassy group of people from lots of different degree courses both undergrad and postgrad and we have regular socials with the other CUAC groups Vox and the Acappellads.
Vox are the mixed-gender, competitive A Cappella group experienced in competing and performing all over the UK! After a SUPER busy year last year, Vox is looking to take on a more chilled approach to a cappella this year. They’re looking forward to having a couple of rehearsals a week to work towards performances (still of really high quality) and hopefully some competitions! They’re looking for lots of male/low voices (basses, baritones, tenors) and a soprano or two! Also, any beatboxers/vocal percussionists would be very much appreciated!
All three groups are auditioning for new members this year and we have some exciting Freshers events coming up to introduce newbies to the society. We're a group of people who love to perform and have fun, but if you're interested in getting involved with A Cappella Society without the singing, we always welcome guest arrangers and even supportive social members to the gang!
If A Cappella Society sounds like your cup of tea, come to our Give It A Go which is the perfect opportunity to get to know us. We’re also heading to Revs afterward for our first social of the year!
