Chromatones A Cappella

Chromatones A Cappella is an auditioned vocal performance group, that performs all of its music without the aid of musical instruments or backing tracks. Our group consists of 15-18 singers, beatboxers, rappers, and arrangers, with a variety of backgrounds and musical tastes. Our main goal is to have fun, while learning and performing challenging music with our own Chromatones twist.

Touring, recording EPs, and having tons of fun on our retreats are just a few of the many things that we do before our end of semester concerts.

Our musical styling is extremely varied, but with an emphasis on indie-alternative and RnB music, and it is all arranged within the group.

We hope to see you around Montreal at one of our many gigs!

Effusion A Cappella

We’re McGill’s finest a cappella ensemble! Formed over 15 years ago, Effusion started off a small and humble group of musicians who laid a foundation of soul haunting repertoire and mind-numbing good looks for future generations to build on. 15 years, 3 CDs, and countless roadtrips and weekend retreats later, Effusion is still laughing, good-time-ing, and making sweet sweet a cappella.

Effusion performs at events, soirees, dinners, festivals, and student functions in and around Montreal, QC. The group has competed in many renowned competitions such as the International Competitions of Collegiate A Cappella and the Montreal Chinese Community and Cultural Center’s Making the Band ’09, in which we placed 2nd in the ’09 Northeast division and first overall.

Music sans instruments is our passion, and we draw our influences from across the musical spectrum. R&B, soul, gospel, pop, folk, rock, and jazz influences can all be heard in our repertoire.
