On May 10, Acapollo competed in the AUS-ACA 2015 Australian A Capella Victorian Championships, and WON the Best Ensemble Award!

Acapollo trained super hard for this event, and it all paid off. Check them out in the videos below, singing an original mashup “A Sky Full of Stars Found Love” and “Counting Stars”.

 

Camp Semester 1!

Once again, Apollo will be holding our bi-annual camp during the mid-semester break! We are going to St John’s Ambulance Recreation Camp, Wesburn, from Tuesday April 7th to Thursday 9th April, which is immediately after Easter Monday. Camp is a great chance to get to know all the other people in Apollo, through fun, games, food, music, and maybe a bit of actual rehearsing too – we do have concerts coming up! Email social@apollohms.org.au for booking information.
