The Open A cappella Competition is looking for sponsorship.

 

The Open A Cappella Competition or The OAComp, is an annual competition designed to showcase collegiate and community a cappella groups across the UK. Our inaugural competition ran in 2020 with 10 highly acclaimed groups. Since then, we’ve been running the UK’s only national a cappella competition annually – all for the love of a cappella.

The competition usually lasts 2-3 hours, packed full of excitement and fun, with each group presenting their own musical arrangements and choreography during their 10 minute time slot.
