Honors College student band VEACH won the top position in the Macau District category of the Asia Acappella Festival 2016 college a cappella competition, last Sunday at the University of Macau.

Eurico Jose Lee DOS SANTOS, Heather Jean BIRKELAND, Chris Xinwei LI, Vivian Yuxin LIU, Aurora Yuge XUE and Paul Sheung Yan YIP together joined forces as the VEACH student band and competed with the song “Stand by Me” against teams from the Mainland and Hong Kong. Aside from having been informed about the competition only weeks earlier, this is also VEACH’S first attempt at acapella.


VEACH faced great challenge to practice for this new filed of music in such a short period of time while trying to balance their school work.They practiced sedulously and took part in the competition with an attitude to gain experience and learn from professional teams that came from the Mainland and Hong Kong. VEACH’s first a cappella pursuit was recognized by the judges and they took home first place in the Macau District category of the competition.

The Asia Acapplla Festival 2016 college a capplla competition was held on November 13, 2016 at the Student Activity Centre theatre in the University of Macau.
