Hello 2014!

From everyone at Acquire A Cappella, we want to with you happy holidays and a happy new year. As 2014 rolls by, we are looking forward to bringing more content and putting on more elaborate shows so we can entertain and maybe raise a couple of eyebrows of delight!

We know we’ve been AWOL recently; we’ve been arranging a couple more songs, working with new leadership, and getting cozy with our newest members! But with a new year coming up, we will bring forth what we’ve been working on for the last couple months!

Speaking of new recruits, here they are!

From Left to right: Ryan DeHart (Bass), Audrey Vogel (Mezzo), Abrielle Parker (Alto), Lauren Garcia (Alto), Adrianna Gonzales (Soprano), Jordan Burnside (Tenor), Michele Weindling (Mezzo), Anna Castleton (Soprano), Martin Lee (Tenor). And not pictured: Olivia Packard (Alto)

Farewell, 2010-2011.

We have just one performance left before we say goodbye to the 2010-2011 school year. We’re sad to say goodbye to our graduating members: our director Pat, assistant director Rachel, jack-of-all-trades Marya, and Christian, the beloved Dane. But we’re also excited to announce next year’s leadership team: musical director Mitch, assistant director Caitlin, and business co-directors Danny and Dipika!

Stay tuned to our site this summer for information on fall auditions and shows, and as always, never hesitate to send us an e-mail to see if we’re available to sing at your barbecue or birthday party or whatever! The year may be over, but we won’t stop singing. <3 Have a great summer, friends!

Thanks for coming to Acquirefest!

Thank you so much to all of our fans and friends who came out to Acquirefest this year. We had such a great time performing with The Stanford Harmonics, Fleet Street, The Liquid Hotplates, the Men’s Octet, Artists in Resonance, Isang Himig, Cloud 9, and The Hightones. You guys rock!

…But this doesn’t mean we’re done for the year! We’ll continue to perform at events around UCSC and downtown, so keep an eye on our events page for upcoming shows. And we’re always looking for shows and gigs, so shoot us an e-mail for anything from your birthday BBQ to a charity event. We’d be honored to bring the aca-love wherever we’re needed.

Congratulations to PLUtonic and the UCD6 for advancing to the next ground, and to Cloud Nine for placing 3rd! Slug pride!
