Welcome to GCU Club Acapella

Grand Canyon University’s Club Acapella program is one of the most fun and rewarding club sports programs on campus! It is filled with opportunities for music, creativity, friendships, networking and friendly competition.

Many of our members and ensembles proudly represent GCU by singing at various sporting events on campus, including performing the national anthem.  Members also have the opportunity to enhance their college experience through competitions with other schools in seasonal showcase events across the state. These events feature small vocal ensembles singing mash-ups of energetic and harmonic pop tunes, as well as seminars to help members improve their craft.

More than 80 singers auditioned for placement in our Club Acapella ensembles for the 2017-2018 season.
