The UK'S LONGEST-RUNNING Student A Cappella Group

to About


The Oxford Alternotives are one of Oxford University's finest mixed a cappella groups, and the longest-running student a cappella group in the UK! 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, performing on BBC1's Pitch Battle, reaching the UK Final of the International Championships of Collegiate A Cappella, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
