Techapella Returns October 15th

In 2013, the Silicon Valley tech world a cappella groups came together to create an informal, non-competitive concert to share their passion for music with the world.

This showcase-like event is a huge community builder for the ever-growing circle of tech-company based a cappella groups. With sold-out crowds, varied repertoires, and even the occasional beatbox battle, this event grows in popularity each year. So much so, that they recently expanded to two shows instead of just one.

San Francisco Bay Area fans will have two chances to see Techapella live this year, with the first show on October 15th at Fox Theatre and the second show on November 4th at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

The lineup for each show is different. On October 15th you’ll see:

Googapella and Alphabeat (both from Google)
The Vocal Network (Facebook)
The Keynotes (Apple)
InTune (LinkedIn)
Syncopation (Dropbox)
Funderstruck (an inter-company techie mix)
and the newest Techapella group The Chromotones (23andMe).

And on November 4th, Deke Sharon will emcee along with performances by:

Googapella (Google)
The Vocal Network (Facebook)
Songbirds (Twitter)
The Square Registers (Square)
The Pintunes (Pinterest)
Airbnbeats (Airbnb)
Scalesforce (Salesforce)
Internote (an inter-company a cappella group)

Acaville members will have access to the LIVE recording from October 15th!
