Bringing talent from all over the country, Filosophy is composed of over 20 artists in rotation whose goal is to further promote Asian representation through live performance.

InterVals

UC Santa Barbara

We are an all-gender acapella group from UCSB!

Offbook

San Francisco, CA

This small singing collective started when a contingent of Facebook employees, who share a love of making music with their mouths, wanted to continue their passion for singing outside the office. Offbook sings a variety of pop and rock hits - and always looks to pack a punch. Members have since migrated to different companies and even different states, but their love of making music together stays alive!

Sitaare

UC San Diego

Sitaare is UCSD’s premier South Asian fusion A Cappella team. Since its inception in 2006, Sitaare has taken pride in their diverse vocal talent, and strives to bring creativity, variety, and culture into their repertoire. They enjoy performing various genres of both South Asian and Western music, ranging from Indian Classical and Bollywood to R&B and Pop. Sitaare has traveled across the country to compete in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella and South Asian A Cappella circuits- making it to the semifinals of the ICCAs in 2021. They also participate in UCSD’s annual cultural events, as well as in private events in San Diego, the Bay Area, and beyond. Sitaare always looks to push the boundaries of Desi A Cappella and reach for the stars.

Treblemakers

Boston University

The BU Treblemakers were formed in 1996 around three fundamental ideals: fun, love, and music. Since then, generations of Trebs have rallied around these values to become one of Boston University’s most irresistible all gender a cappella groups. Over the years, many generations of Trebs have participated in producing eight studio albums and three EPs, most recently: “CADENCE,” which is now streaming on all platforms. Today, the group is known for its diverse repertoire, energetic performances, talented soloists, and innovative arrangements.

YOUTHphonics

UCLA

LAAF 2024 HOST GROUP

YOUTHphonics A Cappella is UCLA’s student run, all-gender community service a cappella group focused on music and mentorship. We work to make a reliable curriculum accessible to Los Angeles youth, raising awareness about the importance of music education programs in high schools.

In addition to teaching a class at Fairfax High School every Friday, we volunteer our voices for community concerts and events. Past performances and community service events include: PAC's Annual Dance Marathon, Disneyland's First A Cappella Showcase, Ronald Reagan Hospital Holiday Caroling (with puppies!), Bruin Run/Walk, UCLA Basketball games, and many more!

We are devoted to fostering joy, community, and musicality in and out of the classroom.
