About us

Welcome to the family! We are Absolute Harmony, Royal Holloway’s very own A Cappella vocal group and reigning Society of the Year!

We perform diverse, original arrangements of chart hits and classics alike! This year’s arrangements included artists like Hozier, Billy Ocean, Panic! At The Disco and Bon Jovi along with many more! Absolutely no experience is necessary and we perform in six parts: Soprano, Mezzo, Alto, Tenor, Bass and Beatbox. If you’re unsure of your vocal part, pop along and we’ll help you find where you belong!

Our smaller, auditioned choir Hardcore Harmony compete at national level, tackling extra technical arrangements and incorporating choreography into performances. Come and try out if you’re feeling enthusiastic!

As a society, we champion inclusivity and accessibility and we have garnered multiple awards for doing so! We love and celebrate one another unconditionally and we cannot wait to welcome you with open arms!
