A Cappella Club
The UW A Cappella Club is the umbrella club of all a cappella groups at the University of Waterloo! UWACC was founded in 2008 originally with one ensemble and has since expanded to include many different groups including the AcaBellas, the Unaccompanied Minors, ACE, the Musical InterDudes, the Water Boys, and In Full Colour.
The Water Boys
The Water Boys is a lower-voice auditioned group.
The Unaccompanied Minors
The Unaccompanied Minors is a mixed-voice auditioned group.
The AcaBellas is an upper-voice auditioned group.
A Cappella Ensemble (ACE) is a mixed non-auditioned group.
The Musical InterDudes
The Musical InterDudes is a small lower-voice auditioned group focused on musical comedy.
In Full Colour
In Full Colour is a mixed-voice auditioned competitive small group focused on storytelling.
Typically, auditions are held at the start of term. 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) concert held at one of the theatres on campus. Groups typically practice 1-2 times a week and learn around a 10-15 minute choreographed set for the EOT concerts. Outside of the EOT concerts, there are numerous performance opportunities on campus and within the KW area where the groups get to interact with the community at large.
For further details on JOINING or PERFORMANCE REQUESTS, please email the groups directly, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to singing with you!
