About us

Amplifying the Raw Voice

Our Story

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. 

After establishing the first a cappella society at Warwick University and nursing 4 new a cappella groups on to the campus scene, Shaquira combined her extra-circular experience with skills learnt in her MA in Creative and Media Enterprises. With a burning passion to give back to the UK a cappella world – the Open A cappella Community was born.

We were so impressed with the organisation and we loved having the opportunity to have an away day to compete for fun.
