Saans A Capella
Thanks to all of our donors, we have successfully reached our initial goal of $1,000! We have added a stretch goal of $2,000! All proceeds will continue to help cover costs of our competitions.
Hello! We are Saans Acapella! We are a team of musicians that love to share their passion for western and South Asian music. We primarily perform South Asian and American pop fusion pieces. Over the years, we have traveled to many cities all over the country to represent CMU at multiple showcases, and competitions. Some of these cities include Austin, Berkeley, Baltimore, Charlotte, and many others! We started off by just representing CMU at showcases around the country, but now we are proud to say that we are a national level competing team in the South Asian Acapella Circuit, also known as Association of South Asian Acapella! Check it out here:
Throughout the year, we travel to a lot of places including California, Texas, North Carolina, and Maryland in order to compete and showcase CMU talent all over the country. Now that we attend competitions in the South Asian circuit, it has become really important for us to fundraise so that we are able to attend the competitions and represent CMU. Every competition that we attend entails the following:
1. Paying registration fees for each member of the team
2. Paying for food, and hotels during our stay
3. Paying for airfare if we are flying or paying for vans if we are traveling by road
4. Paying for costumes
This year, we have attended 1 competition during the Fall semester in Berkeley, California where we placed third! Our goal for the current semester is to attend two more competitions. In order to do so, and be able to pay for our expenses, we have decided to take up this project.
Saans Acapella has made groundbreaking strides since its start in 2014. We are a relatively young team who has started out just by performing locally at CMU, to traveling outside to represent CMU at other schools’ showcases, to now competing in the national circuit. The money that is donated will be used to pay for our team’s travel, food, registration, etc.! We are really grateful for this project, and your donations will be greatly appreciated! Every dollar counts!
