The Open A cappella Community

About

The Open A cappella Community aims to create a National Network for our UK a cappella community and we pledge to support, promote and provide for our community, encouraging more people to enjoy and celebrate a cappella singing. We started as a competition in 2020, but soon realised – there was room for something bigger, to unite the UK a cappella nation.

Our founder Shaquira has always had a love for singing. Starting at her Grandmother’s Caribbean a cappella church as a young girl, she grew up in choirs and big bands with classical music training in the clarinet and steel-pans, self taught in guitar, ukulele and whatever else she could get her hands on. Her true love however, was always the raw voice.
