We Are Resonance
Founded in 2012, Resonance began as a quintet that quickly grew in both size and sound, becoming one of the premier a cappella groups at UCLA. Over the past few years, we have since established ourselves as a vibrant a cappella group with a unique sound and a high level of musical excellence.
What We Do
In 2014 and 2016, Resonance qualified and performed for an audience of 10,000 at UCLA's Spring Sing, the university's largest and most highly competitive musical showcase. In 2017, our group competed for the very first time at the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA), placing 2nd at the Southwest Quarterfinal, 3rd at the Southwest Semifinal, and winning awards for Outstanding Arrangement at both competitions. That same year, Resonance also recorded our first studio album, “In This Light”, which is available now on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify. Since then, we have released our singles Bad Romance, September, and Praying Fools. In 2020, Resonance competed in the ICCA's once more, placing 1st in our West Quarterfinal. However, we didn't let a virtual year slow us down. In early 2021, we placed 1st at the virtual LA A Cappella Festival (LAAF). Most recently, our music video submission for the virtual 2021 ICCA's advanced to Finals after placing 1st in both the West Quarterfinals and Semifinals, while also winning awards for Outstanding Vocal Percussion and Outstanding Mix. We are now currently working on recording our second studio album, which we hope to share with you soon!
Why We Do It
Guided by our passion for performance and friendship, Resonance hopes to share our music with our community and make a lasting impact. As such, we can be found performing at a number of philanthropy events and concerts across California, the greater Los Angeles area, and on the UCLA campus.
