By Chance


Acapella in Wunsan high school means a group,a bunch of people who hold microphones all the time and full of passion. We spread their enthusiam and bring the most powerful performance to you. Every member wants to get into this group must get through a strict audition.We persist on every note and every beat. We never stop particing even though the typhoon or raining days.


Fashion Voice A cappella Group


Fashion Voice A Cappella Group was formed because of the elective course “Vocal Jazz: A Cappella Singing (II).” It is composed of seven music-loving students of Department of Music, National Sun Yat-Sen University, each of them comes from different countries, cities, and majors in different instruments. Despite the fact that every member has various backgrounds and professions, Fashion Voice intends to share their enthusiasm toward music through A Cappella, which only uses the instrument that we’re born with, and create wonderful memories between group members. Fashion Voice A Cappella Group was once invited to the Music Week at NSYSU, and performed at 2018 A Capella Concert of Ten Schools in Southern Taiwan.


Dominant 7 A cappella Group


Having different backgrounds, but we have the same determination about a cappella music. It took us time to get together. We want to share the delight of singing a cappella to everyone. Dominant7, made up by seven members with the devotion in a cappella, will bring you guys an unique performance.


SixTeens A cappella Group


SixTeens is a A capella group, which is composed with six high school students. The members love music very much,so we get together. The name "SixTeens" means "six teenagers". Exatly, the members met each others when they were six-teen. We're here to sing for the love to music.


Jonny Dope


Hey, guys! We are a group of classmates who have passion on singing and performing from National Feng-Hsin Senior High School. Most of the group members are fresh to try Acapella. In the process of practicing, we learn from each other, the more we sing, the more we like it, so we finally decided to form a group to attend the contest for our very first experience, to see a more formal and perfessional stage. We are called "Jonny Dope". Why? Now is the time for us to explain the origin of this cool name. We always have lots of fun during practicing, and many of our members are talktive, the relationship of us is awesome, however, that's the reason why we always forget to bring music sheet for practicing. Thus, to force group members to remember this, we just called ourself "Johnny Dope!" It's hailrious, but it's very easy to be noticed by everyone. We hope that you can enjoy our performance, thank you all!


Sebastian Crowd Pete


We are students now studying in Applied Music Department at Tainan National University of Art. We are interested in A Cappella's music and want to feel more fun, so we decided to form a group. The origin of the group name was also very amazing. At the time, two of the members suddenly picked up a song during the chat. One of the two felt good. Then he asked who the singer was and another said that Crowd. According to the person named Sabbastin is derived from Johann Sebastian Bach. And the word Bit sounds like beat. Although the origin of the name is a little bit ridiculous, but it sounds interesting. So we set it up. Our vocal configuration is TTBB and a vocal percussion. We hope to be inspired in the cultivation of this music.


Half Thirteen

The first generation member of this group are going to graduate now, thus, they have recruited new members to constitute a different group. Through their constant practice and the instruction given by teachers, they have come a long way, getting good grades in competition held by TCMC. The reason why they called HalfThirteen is because half thirteen also means six and half, actually, they have seven members,but when it comes to the day of performance or competition, there are always only six members. No matter six or seven, they can create beautiful and touched music.

Chicago Boy


Chicago Boy is a Japanese a cappella group, and they are all alumni of Waseda University A Cappella Club, "Street Corner Symphony (SCS)." Kaichiro Kitamura of TION is a fellow alumni of SCS as well. All 6 members of the group, which was established in 2014, are amateur singers, and have full-time jobs. They gather once a month to rehearse, and perform in gigs and festivals in Tokyo a couple of times a year. Their repertoire consists of a variety of genres; Jazz, Japanese Pop, and Contemporary R&B to name a few. They participated in last years’ Incheon Airport World A Cappella Competition, and won Silver Prize. They boast 4 soloists (SATB), accompanied by a very talented rhythm section. Their tight harmony and groovy chorus are sure to make the audience get up on their feet and DANCE! This is only their second performance outside of Japan, so please give them a warm welcome!!
