Christmas Carols Save Us All From Exams

A Cappella brings some classic Christmas cheer.

Amidst deadlines and looming exams, on Sunday night in Younger Hall, the A Cappella Society put on their annual Christmas concert. The a cappella groups of this University – the Vocal Bandits, the Accidentals, the Belles and the Beaus, the Hummingbirds, the Alleycats, and the Other Guys (along with a special appearance from the Trinity Tiger Tones, an all-male group from the University of Melbourne who just landed down in Scotland after twenty-five hours of traveling) performed sets of Christmas songs, pop songs, and classic a cappella mash ups.

Although some may criticise that it is a bit early to celebrate Christmas, the concert provided a festive distraction from deadlines and wintry weather outside. Comedic interludes filled the gap between performers and gave the show a nice, entertaining pace that kept the nearly two hour show from feeling as long as it was.

Each a cappella group gave a three song set showcasing their talents and styles. While some groups heavily laid on the Christmas theme with ugly Christmas jumpers, scarves, fairy lights, and Santa hats, others stuck to their usual competition style, which still nicely fit into their performances. The highlight of the night was definitely the Belles and the Beaus’ haunting rendition of “Silent Night.”

I look forward to seeing how the Christmas Concert will play out in future years and definitely recommend that anyone at this University goes to at least one of the A Cappella Society’s shows during their time here.
