A Cappella Texas entertains audiences with world-class a cappella harmony featuring new and challenging contemporary a cappella, doo-wop, gospel music, as well as traditional barbershop arrangements. Since 1961, Austin has been home to a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS). In the past six decades the Austin Chapter and our quartets have brought people together in harmony and fellowship to enrich lives through singing. Hundreds of local singers and schools have joined in the fun as we have encouraged and preserved the uniquely American a cappella art form known as barbershop music.
While singing is our passion, part of our mission is to foster the musical growth of young singers in middle and high school choirs to discover and perform a cappella music. Every year, through donations, we award scholarships to promising High School seniors who plan to pursue a major or minor in vocal music performance or vocal music education. As it is part of our mission, we hope to encourage others to see how music and singing is an experience that brings joy to every generation.
Under the leadership of our enthusiastic director, Katy Dane, A Cappella Texas has committed ourselves to achieving top performance levels through continuous improvement on vocal skills & performance growth. Since 2017 and for three years running, A Cappella Texas is the Southwestern District Division AA Chorus Champion, winning Most Improved Chorus in 2017 & 2019, and the winner of the Audience Choice Award for 2019!
