Singapore's International A Cappella Festival 2011 will be held tomorrow, 13 October, at the School of the Arts. The festival has been established as a month-long vocal extravaganza featuring top acapella groups from many countries and of various styles.

This year's line up will be highlighted by some of Europe's best acappella groups such as The Real Group from Sweden, with its world acclaimed and multiple award winning a cappella music, Muttis Kinder and Suade for comedy-flavoured concerts, alongside Vocado, also from Sweden, with Jazz-infused A-cappella.

The Real Group (TRG) is a professional acapella ensemble from Sweden formed 27 years ago consisting of members Emma Nilsdotter, Katarina Henryson, Anders Edenroth, Morten Vinther, Anders Jalkéus. They are also known as one of the leading forces in the world of vocal music today.

Through the years, the members have been engaged in a variety of activities such including concert performances, events, studio recordings, song-writing, arranging, score publishing, etc.

TRG’s style was developed early in their history together with compositions and arrangements by the group members. They produced a large number of records consisting of a mix of jazzy vocal music that sometimes leans towards folk music, and sometimes towards pop.

Their appearance in Singapore for the International A Cappella Festival 2011 will be the group's second time to the city-state since 2006.

TRG will be performing on 13th October, 8PM at the School of the Arts Concert Hall (1 Zubir Said Drive, next to Cathay Cineplex building).
