This year’s vote featured a section where the public was asked what they feel should join the ranks of 2016 Top 10 Asia A Cappella News. After sieving through, these are what The VoiceBox selects as Top 10 worthy to be our HONORARY ELEVENTH!
  • Many happenings at TCMC台灣合唱音樂中心:
    • At the 2016 Taiwan International Contemporary A Cappella Competition, Gili 織樂’s place as International category Champions is a first in the category’s history since 2005, where so far, non-local teams have championed the category, while Taiwanese groups also shared the remaining two places with international teams in the same category: Czech group Skety and 純粹人聲樂團 The Pure (Taiwan) shared second place, while Guess What took third place with Japan’s Murasakinoue.
    • Visually-impaired A Cappella 蝦米視障人聲樂團 The Bleinders (Taiwan) charmed audiences in Graz at their invitational performance at vokal.total in July. Upon returning, the team wowed local Taiwanese audiences and government officials.
Editorial Notes
As ProfRed and TheFounder deliberated alongside the committee with the two other agencies, we are glad that more news from other parts of Asia has been well regarded.
With this year’s voting included strong entrants from China, Philippines, Malaysia, and Korea, we hope more in Asia will step up in activity to create more awareness for the art form, creating a vibrant and diverse community.
We’d like to thank A for A Cappella News and VocalBox for the chance again to be on the panel, and we would take this opportunity to thank everybody who has taken part in the poll and we hope to see through another round for 2017 Top 10 Asia A Cappella News!
