'Most Improved Student Group'  - Guild Awards 2016

Are you interested in singing in an a cappella group? Inspired by Pitch Perfect perhaps, or by a cappella videos you stumbled across on a night-time YouTube binge? Can you beatbox? If yes to any of these questions, then this is the society for you!


The society currently consists of 7 separate a cappella groups:

Score - A mixed, auditioned group.

The Uptone Girls - An all-female, auditioned group.

Trebleution - A mixed, auditioned group.

AbraCappella - A mixed, auditioned group.

The Blair Pitch Project - A mixed, auditioned group.

One Note Stand - A mixed, auditioned group.

Acapitches - An all-female, auditioned group.


The society also holds non-auditioned workshops and events throughout the year. We established a 'Non-Auditioned A Capella Group' in 2015 and for two years held regular society rehearsals in which anyone could attend. Information about this will be announced after the A Capella audition period of September/October.


To join one of the auditioned A Capella groups:

Each group recruits new members once a year at the beginning of the academic year. Auditions for all groups are held together meaning you only need to audition once, regardless of how many groups you may be interested in joining. These auditions are drop in auditions between, all that is required is a song between 1-2 minutes long. 

Auditions for 2017/2018 will be held:

  • Septemeber 29th (4-8pm) - Beorma Bar
  • September 30th (2-6pm) - Beorma Bar
  • October 1st (2-6pm) - Beorma Bar
