A Cappella Society
Hi, and welcome to our little home on the student union website! We're Cardiff University's A Cappella society, a bunch of friendly students that are committed to making music with our mouths! Starting as just an all male group, we've grown massively in the last five years to consistently reach our gold tier status as a medium society and we now have five groups, all varying in style but none lacking in talent!
The Acappellads are our all-male identifying competitive group, who were also the first group in the society. Last year they reached the UK Semi-Finals of ICCAs (International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella). With vocals ranging from falcetto to bass, these boys cover a vast array of music, all the way from All These Things That I've Done by The Killers to Man! I Feel Like a Woman by Shania Twain!
Acatude is our newer all-female group, formed organically by members of interChorus. With only twelve members they are also the smallest group of the society but are non-competitive, so focus on showcasing talent away from a competitive environment. Known for their powerful mashups and rockin' it out in red, they've smashed some hits so far, including Like a Prayer and In The Mid3dle!
Known for being sass queens in green, the DeciBelles are our all female group! With an extensive repetoire ranging from Little Mix to MILCK, featuring some of the highest and lowest female voices in the whole society, it's not a surprise that these ladies have reached the semi-final of both Voice Festival UK 2018 and the UK Final of ICCA 2019!
InterChorus is our large mixed group, featuring ranges from soprano to bass. Non-competitive and uncapped, they sing purely for fun! Featuring section leaders to teach the vocal parts to other members, interChorus have been able to perform amazing arrangements of pop hits to an impressive standard, including medleys of Abba and Clean Bandit hits!
Vox is our competitive mixed group, and like the A Cappellads, they have also reached the UK semi-finals of the ICCAs! Their balance of male and female voices has complimented some outstanding arrangements that were hits at our awards ceremony in 2019, including It's Oh So Quiet and Genius!
Whether you want to be part of one of our groups, be in charge of merchandising and advertising, be a sound technician or run the show backstage - we need you!
We are always looking for people who wish to join the team and help run the extra parts of our society! There are loads of people who are willing to sing and if you are interested in arranging music, working with us to improve our general sound or just want to work with a group of talented individuals, then we would love for you to get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
