Fund Aquapella to represent the UK
Many congratulations to Bath's Aquapella who pipped the Bristol Suspensions and the Songsmiths to take this year's UK Final of the International Champions of Collegiate A Cappella. They now have the opportunity to travel to New York to compete in the international final which means they have one month to raise a scary £11,000. Could you help them? If so you can find their fundraising page at https://www.gofundme.com/Aquapella2NYC .

Kevin Fox to leave the Swingles
We're sorry to learn that the extraordinary Canadian singer, beatboxer (and former archaeologist) Kevin Fox is to leave the Swingles at the end of the Summer 2019. His talent and contribution to the UK a cappella scene have been immense over the past decade and many of us have thoroughly enjoyed his workshops and tutorials. We wish him all the best with his new start. Note: if you think you could replace Kevin let the Swingles know at www.theswingles.co.uk/auditions by Sunday 28th April 2019. You'll need to be comfortable singing from a low D (D2) up to a high F (F4) in chest or head voice. You should also be an experienced vocal percussionist (and happy to step into some pretty big shoes).
