Soulstice A Cappella - 2019 Winter Season

The Winter 2019 Semester is now underway, and Soulstice A Cappella is thrilled to be singing again! After a restful and exciting break—where some of our members traveled the world, some enjoyed the nearby slopes of Mt. Tremblant, and others relaxed with family—we are back in the winter wonderland of Montreal!

First, some exciting news! We held Winter Auditions and saw some fantastic, fresh talent! We are thrilled to announce the following singers who received callbacks:

Hannah Nes

Oz McClamrock

Hope Jesmer

Congratulations to the callbackees!

Keep up with our social media (Instagram: @soulsticeacappella; Facebook: Soulstice A Cappella) for exciting gig announcements, photos and videos, and—soon enough—information regarding our Winter Concert!

With love,

The Soul-Fam

Fall Concert Announcement

First and foremost, Soulstice would like to thank everybody who came out on Halloween to support us in our collaborative performance with the Princeton Footnotes! It means the world to us to have a full audience, even at our local bar. Special thanks to Bar Des Pins for being the unofficially official bar of the McGill A Cappella Community.

On November 16th, we will be performing at a coffee house at around 10pm, hosted by Vent Over Tea and Stronger Than Stigma. Ticket and event info can be found in the event tab for our website! It's great music for a great cause; you are definitely going to want to check that out.

Finally, the moment you have all been waiting for! We are so excited to announce our fall concert...

Soulstice a Cappella Presents: LOVE ON THE ROCKS
Our fall show has officially launched, and it will be happening on November 19th at 9pm at La Sala Rosa. Reminder, we will not have an opening act, so be sure to get there early! More information on how to purchase tickets/venue details/etc. can be found in the events tab on our website! 

Thank you for your continued support of the arts and Soulstice a Cappella! See you soon.

Audition Information

August is coming to a close faster than we could possibly believe, and Soulstice will be having auditions for the coming year on September 8th-10th. Our audition spreadsheet isn't up yet- but check here or our Facebook page for the launch! 

What you need to know:
- Auditions are very casual- you'll need to prepare 1-2 minutes of something you can sing a cappella that best shows off your voice. 
- There's a chance you'll need to do some sight singing and/or sing back. Don't panic- it's just so we know where you're at.
- Callbacks will be the following THURSDAY. You'll receive an email either way, and if you're selected we will send you more details. We are good friends with the other groups and all our callbacks are different days of the week! So no conflict. If you're accepted into more than one, you'll decide on the Friday which group is for you. 
- Auditions are for us to get to know you, as much as they are you getting to know the soul-fam. We look forward to hearing each and everyone of you perform. 

Break a leg!
