Open A Cappella Community

Uniting UK a cappella under one umbrella

Welcome to our community - we're here to amplify your voice.

Within the next 5 years, The OAC will establish a stronger sense of unity here in the UK, keeping the essence of ‘Open A cappella’ but enhancing our ‘connections’ rehashing the ‘competition’ and of course – starting with our ‘community’.

Based in the West Midlands, Common Story is an independent production company creating content that reflects the light and shade of our shared human experience.

One year on from the start of the pandemic Common Story are collaborating with the OAC to capture the experience of a cappella singers as they emerge from lockdown and are able, once again, to sing together in an innovative video project.
