Oxford'S LONGEST-RUNNING Student A Cappella Group


The Oxford Alternotives are one of Oxford University's finest mixed a cappella groups, and its longest-running student a cappella group! Formed in 1993, the Oxford Alternotives were created as an alternative to and an escape from Oxford's prominent chapel choir scene. The Alternotives have gone from strength to strength through the years, competing on BBC1's Pitch Battle, regularly performing at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and reaching the UK Final of the International Championships of Collegiate A Capella.
