Founded in 2011, Illuminations are Exeter’s contemporary mixed a cappella group and are a staple part of the University’s prestigious a cappella scene over recent years. We have achieved four consecutive ICCA appearances, including reaching the UK finals in 2017 and this year in 2020, appearing on Sky 1's Sing: Ultimate A Cappella as well as having three successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
Illuminations have now released two EP's, "Illuminations" and "Ignite" which showcase our style and can both be found on Spotify and other streaming platforms. We have released two successful music videos, "The Sound of Silence" which has amassed over 32k views across YouTube and Facebook, and "Genghis Khan/Sugar" in 2019. Illuminations' eclectic repetoire includes songs ranging from Imagine Dragons to Beyonce, Panic! At the Disco and Muse.
This year, we hope to continue to compete at an international level, return to Edinburgh Fringe and hope to put on a range of shows in and around Exeter. We are aware that this year might be run slightly differently to normal due to COVID-19 and are working hard on planning, but we still have big aspirations for 2020/21!
