The objective of the club is to support the existence, growth, and development of collegiate a cappella and cappella groups on campus. An a cappella ensemble is a vocal group which performs without the use of instruments. Our repertoire spans many genres including pop, r&b, rock, jazz standards, barber shop and many more! The UW A Cappella Club (UWACC) was founded in Spring 2008 originally with one ensemble and has since expanded to include five main a cappella groups:
The Water Boys
The Water Boys are a mid-sized all-male auditioned group under the UW A Cappella Club (UWACC).
The Unaccompanied Minors
The Unaccompanied Minors are a mixed-gender auditioned group under the UW A Cappella Club (UWACC).
The AcaBellas are an all-female auditioned group under the UW A Cappella Club (UWACC).
The Musical InterDudes
The Musical InterDudes are a small-sized all-male auditioned group, and our newest main group under the UW A Cappella Club (UWACC).
ACE (A Cappella Ensemble) is a mixed-gender non-auditioned group under the UW A Cappella Club (UWACC)
A typical term includes an information session for new and old members within the first two weeks of classes. Auditions for the 4 auditioned groups begin shortly after the information session. During the term, social events are held as well as workshops run by club members and professional musicians. The term ends off with the End of Term (EOT) concerts held every term at the Theatre of the Arts in Modern Languages. Groups typically practice 1-2 times a week and learn around a 16 minute choreographed set for the EOT concerts. Outside of the EOT concerts, there are numerous performance and gig opportunities on campus and within the K-W area where the groups get to interact with the community at large.
