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 uw.a.cappella.club@gmail.com. We look forward to singing with you!

The Brain Exercise Initiative is a student run, volunteer based club that uses math, reading and writing as a form of cognitive development for the elderly. It is found that simple math exercises and reading aloud for just 30 minutes a day 5 days a week can have a positive impact on memory for those with Alzheimer's. This is currently being done extensively in Japan. It was discovered by a Japanese neuroscientist, Ryuta Kawashima, and consists of math exercises and reading aloud of short stories. Done for just 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week, improvements in Alzheimer’s patients have been observed. This initiative is based at local retirement homes in our community.
