Acquire A Cappella
Acquire A Cappella
In 2008, they kicked off the new year with a performance at legendary jazz club Kuumbwa, where they opened for Grammy-nominated group Blame Sally. Acquire ended the school year by being featured as the only student group to perform at the inauguration of UCSC's newest chancellor, George Blumenthal. This performance was televised and viewed at all the campuses of the University of California. Each year, Acquire hosts Acquirefest, UCSC's largest a cappella event. Acquirefest has featured a cappella groups from many major west coast universities and yielded over 600 people each year.
In February of 2008, on the one year anniversary of the group's creation, Acquire presented Disneymania, a full night of songs from classic Disney films sung a cappella. Acquire plans to continue the tradition of Acquirefest and create new traditions with even more exciting and unique concerts. In the coming months, Acquire plans to travel to venues outside of California and record a debut CD. Being a part of Acquire means being a part of a close, loving family of people who love to sing. Acquire's singers come from all backgrounds and musical experiences, and each is invited to share their unique insights by participating in Acquire's democratic voting process, which is applied to nearly all aspects of repertoire, show selection, and performances.
There is a substantial time commitment put in by each member of the group, and the hard work is reflected in the amazing performances that Acquire has become so well known for. Acquire will undoubtedly have even more to share in the future as the group's reputation continues to grow. Read more on Last.fm.
