Biography

Acquire is the premiere a cappella group at UC Santa Cruz! Formed in February of 2007, they have entertained a vast audience with a wide range of material arranged solely by members of the all-student group. Twice a week, singers come together to learn, arrange, and perform music that they love. The group has performed all over UCSC in addition to shows hosted by other university groups. Acquire alsoregularly travels to and performs at non-collegiate events.

Acquire has established close relationships with over 15 collegiate, adult, and professional singing groups, as well as other industry professionals and venue promoters. In 2008, they kicked off the new year with a performance at legendary jazz club Kuumbwa, where they opened for Grammy-nominated group Blame Sally. Acquire ended the school year by being featured as the only student group to perform at the inauguration of UCSC’s newest chancellor, George Blumenthal. This performance was televised and viewed at all the campuses of the University of California.

Each year, Acquire hosts Acquirefest, UCSC’s largest a cappella event. Acquirefest has featured a cappella groups from many major west coast universities and yielded over 600 people each year. In February of 2008, on the one year anniversary of the group’s creation, Acquire presented Disneymania, a full night of songs from classic Disney films sung a cappella.
