A Cappella Soc



Please log in to join this organisation.


A Cappella is a family connected by music. We are a warm and welcoming society who encourage our members to mix and make friends. Whether you’re a trained singer or someone who just likes to sing in the shower we invite you to join our family! There are no auditions, just come along for a free taster session; whether you join in September or April the first four sessions are always a free taster, no membership required!


Our Sessions:

We have a rehearsal session every Thursday from 6.30 pm until 9.00 pm in Rolle 018.

  • Our sessions start with a warm welcome from our Chair.
  • The Musical Director or the Assistant Musical Directors lead the warm up and teach the arrangements. However, any member can come up with a musical arrangement, either alone or with the assistance of the MD or AMDs and then teach it to the society.
  • We have two 50-minute periods of learning the arrangements, in between which we have a 15 to 20-minute jam session.
  • We will also have a monthly meeting with the whole society where we can vote on decisions and any member can bring a point into discussion.

Events and Performances:

  • We aim to have at least 3 to 6 performances this year. It is not mandatory that you attend the performances, it is completely your choice. Soloists are chosen, auditioned or you can volunteer yourself.
  • We often have some of our members perform at ‘Jam House’ in the SU, either in groups, bands or alone.
  • If you wanted to perform there but are nervous you can ask one or more of the members to join you.

Community and Socials:

  • This year the committee has decided we would like to help some of the more nervous students out by offering to have a one to one sit down with you where we can talk about anything you like; moving away from home, finding friends, learning how to be constructive and organised with your course. We are here to help!
  • This year we are sponsored by James Street Vaults (JSV) and The Roundabout.
  • We often go to JSV after our sessions for an informal social where we have some drinks deals:
    • House single with mixer: £2.00
    • House double with mixer: £2.50
    • VK: £1.50
  • Most of our official socials will be held at Roundabout, such as our Christmas Party and End of Year Prom. We also get deals from Roundabout:
