Aquapella: Happy Hour (Aquapella)

By | Published on Monday 7 August 2017

Glee fans will enjoy this – a talented group of students from the University Of Bath, dancing and singing acapella with great energy and focus. Endearing? Oh yes! In this humorous, feel-good show, the songs ranged from disco to Ed Sheeran and all points in between, with a storyline about the trials and triumphs of young love. As each member of the ensemble stepped out for their solo I saw them sparkle and command attention – I loved their individuality and their sheer enthusiasm. Honourable mentions go to the soloists in Gnarls Barkley’s ‘Crazy’ and Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’. This was an hour of cheerful escapism to brighten a rainy Edinburgh day.

C, until 12 Aug.
