13th Zurich Acapellanight 2016 – The REAL Thing

The 13th Zurich Acapellanight organizes on January 29th/30th 2016 two evenings with concerts and a two-day workshop. For the first time ever, The Real Group, the world-famous Swedish acappella ensemble, will perform on a stage in Zürich. Saturday night, the stage will be open to various ensembles from Switzerland!

THE REAL GROUP from Sweden has been an ambassador of acappella music for more than 30 years throughout the world. After touring the U.S. and Asia, we would be thrilled to welcome THE REAL GROUP for the first time in Zurich.

For the past 12 years, the popular Zurich Acapellanight has been the key event for acappella music in the Zurich area. The festival offers a platform for various non professional vocal ensembles to perform in front of large audience.

What’s our goal?

There is an increasing popularity of acappella singing. The Zurich Acapellanight opens their stage for various ensembles (tuningforks, Frölein Da Capo, Martin O., zapzarap, Urstimmen, …) and has contributed to start up several careers of artists. In the afternoon workshops, the participants can experiment new things and expand their musical perspective.
