ALBACAPPELLA

Aberdeen & Deeside Ladies Acappella Singers

Retreat 2020

Albacappella enjoyed a wonderful weekend of coaching with the amazing David Sangster. Our Balmoral retreat featured work on songs we hope to be able to share with audiences at the Aberdeenshire Music Festival 2020.
Two intense days of fun and hard work really made our music improve as we learnt the huge benefit of matching all our voices and focusing on vowel sounds that have energy and resonance.
As always our legendary Saturday night entertainment was a complete wow. Guest hosts recently seconded North of the Border after a stint on Strictly ensured that we all participated in the fun which brought the best out of our theatrical divas.

Friends and Family Concert

What a wonderful evening Albacappella had, sharing our singing with the residents of Culter. Albacappella Chorus held an evening of Traditional and Modern Scottish songs arranged in the a cappella style. Culter Heritage Hall was full to capacity with an enthusiastic audience including some of Albacappella's newest members who although not singing were helping to sell tickets and provide refreshments,

Singing brings people together, working in harmony without any hidden agenda and it was nice to be able to share the evening with the talents of "Stardust and Sparkle".

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!
