A Cappella Championships 2013 - Post-Concert Report

THE A CAPPELLA SOCIETY

Post-Concert Report for A Cappella Championships 2013

6th July 2013, Theatre@IlluminITE, ITE College Central


The annual Sing Off in Singapore has gone up yet another notch after this year’s showcase at ITE Central’s Theatre@IlluminITE.


A total of 5 beatboxers and 22 a cappella teams competed in the finals and the amount of good work in the areas of new arrangements, training concepts of each director, the professional skill of vocalists and the energy and amount of importance and dedication put into the competition by all members, the schools and the trainers was very high.


The programme ran with 5 beatboxers for the beatbox battle, 2 choirs, 4 high school teams, 7 college teams, 7 open category teams and 2 international teams from Hong Kong.


The results ended with many close battles and many a time it was by just 1 point to the next team.


The competition has come to a point where it would do well to have bigger sponsors and supporters to give it the stature it truly deserves from a more than good venue to good and well trained crew and flawless administration. This has to be set as the new target for the next championships.


Results


Please refer to attached excel sheet.


Reach


The almost 400 strong audience came largely from the participants and their supporters and this year also included a sizable number of general public. (Tickets sold : Participants :)


Audience


The profile of audiences were mainly singers, club supporters, trainers and some from the general public and even event organisers, largely under 25 with a good percentage of Chinese and Malay participants and some Indians too. The audience comprised of largely Chinese and Malay supporters and some Caucasians.


Marketing


Our marketing efforts also included announcements to schools through our monthly newsletter, social mediums and regular updates via our website, and facebook pages as well as through the participants and schools involved.


Feedback from The Audience


The success of this yearly event and the greatness that it serves to our participants is all that needs to be seen as a great production. From the level of enthusiasm of winning or the humility learned from losing to the respectable thank yous, this event has embedded itself as an instrumental yardstick for most local school teams.


Conclusion


Yet again, the main mission to inspire and start a chain reaction of enthusiasm and channel more interest towards harmony singing has been achieved. TAS needs to set larger goals to possibly grow the publicity profile of such a great event through the media and as well through a larger venue and more prominent sponsorship for prizes and perhaps even an awards night to honor established local groups.

A Cappella Championships 2012

Be mesmerised by classic, jazz and pop tunes alike as the groups fight it out for victory at this year's Aca Champs!

The A Cappella Championships has become a staple in the A Cappella Society's annual calendar of events. It invites the best a cappella groups from all corners of Singapore to compete in a sing-off that challenges not only the performers themselves, but also the audience in re-evaluating the ever-changing genre of a cappella music.

The Aca Champs, as it is endearingly known as, is a programme that aims to provide positive reinforcement for all participating groups and serves as an annual testing ground for local and new pop / jazz a cappella groups to compete against one another in a friendly environment, winning prizes that would enable them to reach more performance platforms and opportunities in our society.

It has over the last 10 years become THE annual a cappella competition,allowing singers to watch and learn from other teams and to assess for themselves the development of standards across the categories each year.
