This evening we’re hosting a very special concert with a veritable smorgasbord of a cappella, all in the name of charity.

The Alts will be singing alongside Out of the Blue, The Oxford Gargoyles, The Oxford Belles, and not one but TWO visiting groups from America.

Tickets are £5 for students, with all the proceeds going towards the Irish Cancer Society, for whom our wonderful president Niamh is running the London Marathon in April.

The Bernard Sunley Theatre, St Catherine’s College, Oxford. 7pm start.

We also got 4 stars from ThreeWeeks (click here). ‘impressive and moving‘.

Thank you so much to all those who came an supported us – we had an absolute blast! Here a few pictures of some of our highlights.
