Kent Ridge Acapella has always been at the forefront of the culture scene at Kent Ridge Hall and NUS. Over the years, we have performed at corporate events, citizenship ceremonies, shopping malls, just to name few. We are invited to sing carols across different venues in Singapore. Some notable clients whom we have had the honour of working with include Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), Milward Brown, Tiffany & Co., Raffles City Shopping Mall, and Parkroyal On Pickering Hotel. Most recently, we have been invited to perform at an A*STAR national day event, as well as at the NUS-ISS Gala Dinner and Dance held at RWS. Besides actively performing in various venues across Singapore, KR Acapella has been participating in numerous competitions at the university and national level. For instance, in 2014, KR Acapella participated in NUS Got Talent and succeeded in making it to the finals of the competition. In the same year, we contested in Vivo City’s Carolling Competition and clinched the second prize home. In 2015, KR Acapella competed in the Singapore A Capella Championships and won second place among strong and professional contenders from all across Singapore. In the following year, we decided to continue the legacy of contending in the championships and our team was awarded the Silver Award and was placed fourth in the open category.
In essence, we strive to make KR Acappella an avenue where talented singers take pride in themselves by producing music solely using their vocals. We are constantly stretching the skills of our members, not only in terms of their vocal techniques but also as charismatic performers. Ultimately, we aspire to deliver professionalism in every single one of our performances, as an evidence of our commitment to be at the forefront of the local a cappella scene.
