About us


Who We Are

Southern Acappella was formed to satisfy a growing demand for mixed voice unaccompanied singing and has quickly gained a high momentum and a cadre of experienced singers from all over the South and Southeast on the country. Our motto is “Excellence in Singing, Music and Performance” and this reflects our drive to provide outstanding overall entertainment. Our repertoire includes contemporary SATB (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) material, as well as TTBB (Tenor, Tenor, Bass, Bass) songs from the barbershop world and songs in up to 8 parts. We have even commissioned arrangements to be specifically built for our mix of voices and we take these to audiences as fresh, new offerings.

Our style as a group is fresh, fun and friendly yet with an extremely focused approach to the work needed to attain the high levels of quality we seek. We strive to keep admin to an efficient minimum and have no committees, making all major decisions as a group in open forum. This combination makes the Southern Acappella experience a very rewarding one for capable singers and audiences alike. Click Here for tesimonials.

Testimonials


“The first thing to note is that if you take your performance and put it before a paying audience, they will go "wow!".….There's plenty of really good stuff…..open voices …support….good tuning….musical and vocal expression…… commitment. ….. Underlying it all - very good voices.”

Music Festival Judge

“I have rarely seen a group of people bond so closely, so quickly – musically and personally. There’s a tangible sense of shared goals, hunger for quality and sheer joy of singing together and this creates many moments or real musical magic. It’s a privilege to direct this group.”

Andrew
MD

“Coming from a classical music background, I was slightly apprehensive about singing a cappella in a different style with a group of dedicated, talented and experienced singers. I needn’t have worried - right from the first rehearsal, people were really friendly, supportive and enthusiastic and I am now hooked! There is a shared passion for creating a beautiful sound and a great sense of fun and comradeship. Highly recommended!”

Ellie
Alto/Baritone
