About VERSA

A cappella group
London
Professional a cappella group based in London.

VERSA are a professional a cappella group based in London. They are formed of six university a cappella veterans, five of which reached the World Finals of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) on Broadway, NYC (that competition in Pitch Perfect...) in 2018. VERSA's members include musical director and founder Sara Edwards, singer-songwriter Emma Hughes, music graduate and throat-bass virtuoso Jia Jia Wu, a cappella expert and award-winning vocal percussionist Tiffany Lau, former musical director of Exeter University's The Sweet Nothings Sarah Hunt, and Broadway soloist Kizzy Millington. The group was formed in January 2019 by Musical Director and soprano, Sara Edwards, who works as a professional arranger for US a cappella company, Liquid 5th. She recently received a Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award for her arrangement of Eivor's Trollabundin as well as winning various arrangement and solo awards at the ICCA whilst directing King's College London's The Rolling Tones.

Almost all our arrangements are arranged by Musical Director and professional arranger, Sara, who has won numerous international awards and works for the highly acclaimed US a cappella company, Liquid 5th.
As a result, we are more than happy to arrange any song requests our clients may have. Understandably, we must charge a small fee for custom arrangements, but at the benefit of creating a set that brilliantly fits our client's vision.
Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be as flexible as possible and to ensure that your event runs smoothly. If timings change, just let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Sure!

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually perform with amplification, which would take around 1 hour for set-up and soundchecks. However, if you have booked us for an event that does not need amplification, we would need only 10 mins or so to adjust to the acoustics of the venue.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Absolutely! That is the benefit of our voices-only act.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We have a set-list that we have worked hard to prepare, however, we love to arrange new pieces and welcome requests. Please do bare in mind that arranging a new song and making it performance-ready will take at least 2 weeks and may incur a small fee. If you already have sheet music for an arrangement, we are also happy to learn this for your event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Absolutely! We have a set-list that we have worked hard to prepare, however, we love to arrange new pieces and welcome requests. Please do bare in mind that arranging a new song and making it performance-ready will take at least 2 weeks and may incur a small fee.

Versa are an exciting, dynamic and impressive all-vocal group. A Delight to work with and even better to watch Live. With a complex yet accessible sound, they bring a vocal warmth and energy to the stage that gives new life to songs you know and songs you don't. A pleasure to work with, professional and polite. I would not hesitate to work with them again. Christopher Bartlett-Walford Club A Cappella - West End - May 2019

VERSA are the newest professional a cappella group in London and they're already a force to be reckoned with. I saw their debut performance in May, and the professional, slick style they've managed to acquire so early is astounding. Can't wait to see what they do next!
