Aberdeen Music Festival 2019

In spite of colds, flu, pollen and a case of measels - Albacappella managed to attend the Barbershop and A cappella class of the Aberdeen Music Festival this week where we shared top honours. Technically this means we've been at the top of the tree for a capella vocal music in Aberdeenshire for the last two years.

A great evening of music was shared at Mannofield Church with Albacappella taking equal honours with Granite City Men's Chorus and the Aberdeen Sweet Adelines. Music was the victor on an evening of great performances proving the vibrancy of the human voice working with each-other.

Illuminate Festival

Albacappella were invited to participate and entertain during the recent Illuminate Scotland Festival held at the newly refurbished Aberdeen Music Hall. Singers from around Aberdeenshire were led by the amazing Stephen Deazley in songs covering over 50 years of music. Designed to show how much music works across the ages to connect us as humans and keep the brain active. A wonderful day of music.

Love2Sing Update

This is really incredible. Albacappella finished our Love2Sing 4 week course just before Valentines day, and managed to achieve an average of 27 guest singers each night. Since then many of our lovely ladies have returned - they just couldn't go back to life without vocal music, and who can blame them.
We have 12 new members who have passed their simple voice assessment and also proved they can sing "Songbird" with great accuracy and without needing to hold sheet music. Huge well done to you all. Fantastic!

Week 3 of Love2Sing 2019

Well tonight is week 3 of our 2019 Love2Sing Course and we're making great progress with the classic "Songbird" famously covered by Eva Cassidy.
Week 4 is the opportunity to bring friends and family to see what your loved ones have been doing on a Wednesday night.
And if you haven't managed to join us on this course but are interested in singing, its a great night to come along and get a flavour of what acappella singing is about.

Love 2 Sing Guests and Visitor Comments

W o w what a wonderful number of visitors to our first two Love2Sing evenings of our 4 week course!

It is f a b u l o u s to have double our number of regular singers - thanks to those enthusiasts braving the weather and power cuts to come to share in singing. What was so amazing was how even with the power cut the singing didn't stop and we shared in an anthemic evening by phone and emergency exit light!

Here's just a few comments from our visitors:

"Thank you again for another great evening, very much enjoyed and loved how we all sounded together!"

"I'll practice as best as I can, looking forward to coming along next week"

"I really enjoyed last night, the coaching was great and the singing fun. What a lovely, welcoming group of people too."
