Pitch In! Our Workshop Sessions are open now

We hope you’re all settling into the new term well and are ready for some more aca-excitement!

We’re proud to announce that our new workshops, ‘Pitch In’, will be kicking off with our first session on Sunday 2nd December, 10:30-16:30. Pitch In is open to all and is completely free!

During the day you’ll learn two songs, with a little choreography, in a relaxed and super fun environment – then if you decide you want more, you can become a member of the Society and perform with the Pitch In group at our annual Christmas Concert on December 8th.

You can now find the Facebook event for the first Pitch In session here, with all the details. You can also sign up directly here!

We hope to see you there!


Imperial College A Cappella society acts to promote the love and performance of A Cappella music within our University. As a rapidly growing society, we are constantly looking to start new projects and to encourage both individuals and groups to develop and enjoy A Cappella music!

Currently, we have five groups in the society:
The Imperielles (All Female – Contemporary)
The Scopes (Mixed – Contemporary)
Surcery (Mixed – Fusion/Contemporary)
Take Note (All Female – Barbershop/Contemporary)
The Techtonics (All Male – Contemporary)

Please look at the groups’ individual pages to find out more about them!



ICU A Cappella society was founded in November 2010 by Eugene Chang and Ed Brightman. It belongs to the Arts and Entertainments Board of ICU.

We aim to promote a cappella singing at Imperial College. This is through hosting a cappella workshops/events, providing information about external a cappella performances and opportunities, and most importantly, providing an official presence to support a cappella groups at Imperial. A cappella groups within the society are able to book rooms for rehearsal/concert rooms at Imperial, use Union facilities such as minibuses and receive financial support from the Union.

We have an open mailing list advertising a cappella events, opportunities and news, both within and outside Imperial. Please visit https://mailman.ic.ac.uk/mailman/listinfo/icu-acappella-list to subscribe.
