Contemporary A Cappella Catagory


New Spiritual Catagory

A-Gou Kids A Cappella Band


A-Gou Kids A Capella Vocal Band is the first children’s acapella band in Taiwan, jointly cultivated by the Cultural Affairs Department of Pingtung County Government and Pingtung Xinyi Elementary School. Most of the members didn’t have a musical foundation when they joined the band. With the full support of their parents and the continuous training of professional teachers, they gradually built self-confidence and musical strength. Today, the kids with an average age of 13 will challenge their limits with a brand-new team member combination.


Fancy Vocal Band


The Fancy Vocal Band from Fantasia Music Art Studio. Since 2021, teachers have been sharing acapella in elementary school and Junior high school and looking for children who love to sing. Let everyone see the performance video of the singer performing on stage and invite children who love to sing to practice a cappella together during the holiday. We came together through our love of singing, a cappella, and look forward to giving you the cutest, most energetic show!


KidsTS


Once upon a time, there was a pop choir named KTS. When the princes and the princesses grow up, they all found their own happily ever after. Naturally, their kids were brought up in homes where their parents loved to sing to and with them. And they are overjoyed to be part of the fun ride now! KidsTS comprises kids from 6 to 9 years old and their parents. They are Wesley (9), Warren (6), and their mommy, Wendi. Fey (8) and her mommy, Vanessa. Yu-Sian (7) and his daddy Robin. Together we wish to pass on the joy of singing to all the children of the world and encourage more kids to take part in this wonderful world of a cappella.


Taichung Children’s Choir La-Ca Bear


Taichung Children’s Choir (TCHC) founded in 2015 is the largest and most professional children's choir in central Taiwan as well as the only facility training professional Children’s a cappella. Our Choir hires occupational teachers to compose music to deliver the fascination of a cappella to children. Achieving remarkable artistic performance is always the prime goal of our training concept.


Paiwanpella


We are a group of Paiwan children who love singing. Currently, there are 10 of us, composed of indigenous classmates from Chaozhou Junior High School. Every Wednesday after school, we have two hours of singing practice, which is our happiest moment. Singing is not just singing; every year, we also perform at nearby nursing homes, special education schools, and community organizations, hoping to spread love and care through our voices. In addition, through the ancient and new songs we sing, we have a greater understanding of the beauty of our indigenous folk songs.


Shiny Panda


From Guofeng Junior High School in Hualien, I chose the a cappella club because I like to sing, and I also know friends from different classes through my voice. Singing alone is very happy, and the process of pursuing harmony is also very exciting, but you can only understand the joy of a cappella if you have participated seriously together!


Star’s Echo


Star's Echo has been established since 2018. So far, we have earned the gold medal, the best lead singer, and the best vocal percussion in Taiwan Contemporary A Cappella Competition-Teenager A Cappella. We consist of students who are from Tanglung Elementary School and Jianguo Elementary School in Pingtung. Now, our students are all grown up and went to different schools but our love of a cappella overcomes distance, it keeps us practicing every month. We hope you can enjoy our beautiful voice.


Fuhsing Ensemble


Founded in 2018, Taipei Fuhsing Private School Ensemble originated from a group of choir members who are highly interested in singing and expect to pursue advanced singing skills and diverse performances. In 2019, we completed impressive performances at Taipei International Choral Festival and the Japan Karuizawa International Music Festival. In 2020, we began to try a cappella and won the Silver Medal and the Best Future Star Award in the Taiwan Contemporary A Cappella Competition. In 2023, we won thunderous applause from the audiences at Super Vocal Carnival organized by Taiwan Choral Music Center. We are wishing for bringing vocal music to the extreme!


Taichung Childrens A Cappella Vocal Band


Taichung Children’s Choir (TCHC) founded in 2015 is the largest and most professional children's choir in central Taiwan as well as the only facility training professional Children’s a cappella. Our Choir hires occupational teachers to compose music to deliver the fascination of a cappella to children. Achieving remarkable artistic performance is always the prime goal of our training concept.


Little A-Gou Kids


They always believe that music can shape a person’s tough inner character. A-Gou Kids A Capella Vocal Band, that accompanies children to grow up with music, has come to the third generation of members. Please take a look at their immature faces and innocent eyes. The ambitious young kids persisted in learning acapella with perseverance and dedicated their time and efforts. They hope to pass on the power of truth, goodness, and beauty on stage with singing.


NaTUral Singles


We are NaTural Singles from NTU A Cappella Club. Because six of us are still single. As a newly established a cappella group, we are lively and interested in personality. We are passionate about a cappella, enjoying the harmony and immersing ourselves in the music. Hope that we can leave lovely memories in this wonderful dream when we are pondering and thinking, when we grow and change, or when time flows inadvertently.


hurt身體


The "hurt身體" is an acapella youth team led by Charlie-Zeng, which formed temporarily by students from NTHU and NYCU. One of their members will be participating in a volunteer team abroad on July 3rd, so " hurt身體" spent the first seven days of summer vacation after their final exams rehearsing three different songs. They chose "Somebody That I Used to Know" as their submission video for the preliminary judging, which was filmed and submitted within a limited time frame. Hopefully, they will deliver a splendid performance in the final competition!


You Can Hear Us Vocal Band


Hello everyone, we are You Can Hear Us VCB! You Can Hear Us VCB is formed by members of NTHU A Cappella Club. We have a close-knit relationship with the club and are the representative of the club! Within our group, we gather the distinctive voices from various departments at NTHU. Except for covering the songs from other musicians, we also compose our own music tailored to each member’s vocal characteristics. This enables us to display our individual strengths and harmonize with each other more effectively. In the future, we will continuously explore different genres and stage styles. We aim to inspire everyone to join us in the pursuit of self-improvement and the joy of singing together!


Paiwanpella


We are a group of Paiwan children who love singing. Currently, there are 7 of us, composed of indigenous classmates who graduated from Chaozhou Junior High School. Every Wednesday after school, we have two hours of singing practice, which is our happiest moment. Singing is not just singing; every year, we also perform at nearby nursing homes, special education schools, and community organizations, hoping to spread love and care through our voices. In addition, through the ancient and new songs we sing, we have a greater understanding of the beauty of our indigenous folk songs.


3Hz


Hello, we are 3Hz, established in 2022, from the NTU A Cappella Club. We aim to eliminate awkwardness, not just to become pitch-perfect geeks who can discern a difference of 3Hz, but also to find confidence and discover our own frequency through self-demand in music. Ultimately, we hope to create resonance between you, the audience, and ourselves. Presenting you with a Red Rose, let Nature Boy capture your Attention, as we look forward to embarking on a journey together in the enchanting and beautiful world of a cappella.


Meet Vocal Band


Meet Vocal Band is composed of a group of friends who met in a choir. They came together because they were drawn to the charm of a cappella music and used a cappella to encounter each other. Through interaction and communication with one another, they discovered more possibilities in music. With a shared passion, they experienced the beauty of unaccompanied pure vocal music and used this kind of music to connect with all their audiences. "Meet Vocal Band" is the perfect representation of this precious serendipity, and they will continue to encounter new members and audiences in the future, continuously passing on this connection!


By Chance


A Capella in Wunsan High School means a group, a bunch of people who hold microphones all the time and are full of passion. We spread their enthusiasm and bring the most powerful performance to you. Every member who wants to get into this group must get through a strict audition. We persist on every note and every beat. We never stop practicing even through the typhoon or rainy days. 


To Be Continued


To Be Continued Vocal Band was established in January 2020, with members of diverse backgrounds in performing arts; we love both to listen to and tell stories, and most importantly, we LOVE to sing along these stories. TBC sings through music types of popular music in both Mandarin and English, rock, and is best known for its rearranged musical pieces and exquisite performing style; in addition to re-arranging classic Western musical songs, TBC also endeavors to promote Taiwanese original musical work and integrates theatrical elements and dance staging into its performance, aiming at providing an integral visual feast besides vocal delight.


InNaluwan Vocal Band


The "In Naluwan Acappella Group" was founded in 2021 along the east coast of Taiwan. It stands as an a cappella ensemble predominantly made up of indigenous youth from diverse tribes. Fueled by their love for singing, the members are dedicated to nurturing Taiwan's indigenous language folk songs. These melodies are brought to life for Taiwanese audiences through captivating acappella performances. Looking ahead, they aspire to collaborate with additional Taiwanese composers and integrate indigenous folk song elements, infusing their music with indigenous languages. This initiative is driven by the goal of safeguarding their cultural heritage and ensuring that the most exquisite voices of Taiwan's indigenous population resonate throughout the passage of time.


The Burning Moon Vocal Band


The Burning Moon Vocal Band of the Music Department of Youth High School is mainly composed of second-year students. The whole group began to learn a cappella singing in the first year of high school. They have participated in many performances, including many performances at school or outside campus. This time they also won excellent results in the modern acapella group of the Hakka Choir Competition. We look forward to increasing our stage experience.


Klangbezirk Taiwanese Singers


Klangbezirk Taiwanese Singers (KTS) was conceived in the winter of 2016 in the collaboration between Taiwan Choral Music Center (TCMC) and Klangbezirk, a professional German a cappella ensemble. Consisting of seasoned a cappella singers and musicians from all around the country, KTS is the first-ever contemporary a cappella pop choir in Taiwan. The group’s Chinese name “Kao-Tu-Si” is a creative spin inspired by the English abbreviation.


Vocal La Vie


Vocal La Vie is composed by the students from RENSING ACADEMY since 2017/10/01.  Everybody in Vocal La Vie is insisting on singing. Perhaps the song we sang out is not the best, but surely it's the only ONE! So, we go forward in the same way with the melody coming out from the mouth in freestyle. C'est la vie! This is life! We are Vocal La Vie.


Dominant 7



Project K


Project K, founded in 2019 at the Hsinchu A Cappella Center, is comprised of a talented group of young individuals. We frequently perform at various events in northern Taiwan.

Croissant Vocal Band


"Croissant Vocal Band" was formed by alumni of Feng Chia University. The Group’s members all participated in the university choir and performed pop acapella on the stage. After graduation, despite working in a different city, the passion for singing still connects with each other. Years later, the "Croissant vocal band" was formed. The word "Croissant" is a kind of fluffy and soft bread, which has rich taste and exudes warmth and contentment. "Croissant vocal band" looks forward to conveying the same feeling by singing, just like a warm wind named "Croissant"!


OBC Singers


We are the OBC Singers. Our members come from different choirs and vocal bands, so our music is very rich and diverse, and different sparks often burst out when we get along. For many years, we have performed a cappella unit in the performances of the Kuangching choir. Until 2021, we participated in the TCMC a cappella party for the first time and held the first special concert in the same year. In 2022, we began to actively participate in various competitions and performances, and we achieved good results in the Taoyuan Chorus Art Festival, the Taiwan Contemporary A Cappella Competition, and the Hakka Chorus Competition. This year we plan to perform in several concerts at Meimen Restaurant, Inage Kaihin Park in Japan, and Keelung Marine Science Museum. Hope to bring more beautiful songs and to pass on the wonderful feeling of singing together to everyone.


Re:Dino


Re: Dino is an a cappella group founded by a few members of the Tamkung University Choir. With the name "Hexagon-Dinosaur" they used originally, they won the first prize in the Tamkung- Choir Competition. Since the members grew up and graduated from Tamkung University, they reformed the group and became “Re: Dino”. By using their unique voices, they will make smooth music that pleases your ears.


HighFight


Our voices and energy are soaring sky "High". Shoulder to shoulder we put on a good "Fight". The first a cappella group from Taipei Hwa Kang Arts School has elevated themselves and came back stronger with brand new music to share.


DiTToEs


DiTToEs is a vocal band made up of singers who came together because they all love singing. Even though they have different jobs and backgrounds, they share a passion for music. With their bold and imaginative ideas, DiTToEs is capable of mastering a wide range of musical styles while delivering captivating performances filled with powerful energy. Just like how the name "DiTToEs" is a playful homage to a famous British rock band, DiTToEs aspires to emulate their essence and share timeless and profound music with everyone.


Accompany Vocal Band


We’re Accompany. We are from National Taiwan University and were established in June 2020. It was the love of music that brought us together. Singing helped us walk through the highs and lows of our lives, and it was a cappella that gave us countless memories of cheers and struggles. Though we’re not from majors of professional music training, our love for music and passion to perform is determined nonetheless. Now, let us accompany ourselves with our music, and we’re joyful to share our time together.

Senkagura


We are the new intercollegiate a cappella band which is constructed by the a cappella club of "Kanda university of international studies" and "Chiba institute of technology". We have been encouraged to sing a cappella in Taiwan through communication with 4 bands from Taiwan in the Utaawase festival, which is an a cappella event in Chiba and a live concert at Kanda University. These two colleges are not enough participants to come here from only one college, but they are located near, and have a connection. This is why we are united to win the gold prize that Japanese youths have never got and to be a history of Japanese a cappella.

X


We have been formed to participate in external competitions this spring. All members are students at Kyushu University, which is in Fukuoka, Japan. We all join an a cappella club called HarmoQ and belong to different bands. We got together because we are very good friends and wanted to try to sing Western songs abroad. This is our first opportunity to sing abroad so we are all excited. This is our last year to sing with these 6 members because more than half of our members will graduate. Furthermore, this is our first time showing our performance in front of a lot of people so we will do our best in this competition.

baff!


baff! was founded in Lübeck at the end of 2013. At that time they were all still at school, but the four musicians met to make street music and sing together. Pretty quickly, many of their own songs were created and the band began to perform concerts. At first mainly in the north of Germany, then also throughout Germany. Through the festival BerVokal 2015 the singers gained a foothold in the German a cappella scene and made a big step forward through some workshops. Some awards followed, e.g. the first prize at Scala Vokal Ludwigsburg 2016, the audience award at So La La A-cappella-Festival Solingen 2018, and the Gold diploma in the categories Jazz (1st place & audience award) and Pop (2nd place) at vokal.total in Graz 2019. After three line-up changes, the band is now re-formed with Josefine Reichert, Lilly Ketelsen, Jonathan Mummert, and Maximilian Kleinert and continues to focus on producing and performing their own German pop songs.

Murasaki No Ue


We, Murasaki No Ue, have tried so many competitions and events throughout Japan since 1996. Fortunately, we've got many prizes including three 1st prizes. These years, we have visited many places in Japan to encourage students to sing A Cappella. Every year we plan a music camp for them and share musical knowledge. And we hope our activities will contribute to the development of Japanese a cappella scenes. We have ONLY men but we can create incredible harmonies and arrangements including jazz, bossa nova, pops, and rock as musical spices with an astonished range of voices. We hope our sound, which is full of our playful minds, will make our guests excited.
