When did you first become involved in a cappella? In what capacity?

2006, In school I was part of the National Youth Choir of Scotland's Ensemble, and I formed a barbershop quartet and small singing ensemble in school. I didn't know much about a cappella then (I still don't!), but I had enjoyed singing so much that when I went to study engineering at university, I joined an a cappella group there and I am loving every moment.
