ACW Wins Gold at 2018 Australian Regional Championships!
A Cappella West is a female vocal harmony chorus based in Perth, Western Australia. ACW was founded in 2008 as a brand-new chorus with practically no experience in barbershop singing. Within 2 years, we participated in our first National competition (2010), coming 4th place overall. We achieved 6th place in Canberra in 2012 in a tough contest, and were excited to be placed 2nd and achieve the Most Improved Chorus award in Perth in 2013. Only 2 years later, just 7 years after forming, we competed in Hobart and won the 2015 Australian Championship with a score of 626, qualifying our directors for Master Directorship. This win meant that the chorus flew to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2016 to represent Australia on the International stage at the SAI World Championships. Now in 2018, we have done it again. Another gold medal and Regional Champions for a 2nd time, with our highest score to date of 632 – we are off to New Orleans to represent Australia in 2019!
Our motto is to have fun, and share our love for singing with our audiences — something that definitely comes across in our energetic performances!
ACW, its directors and teams are passionate about the art form, teaching and training in the barbershop style as well as supporting the community and nurturing members, with an injection of fun. The success of the chorus is ultimately based on the commitment and passion from its leaders and members.
