In July 2017, Síonra competed in Ireland's International A Cappella Competition in Griffith College Conference Centre. It was a fantastic day full of fun arrangements and complex harmonies. We were delighted when we got through to the final and then ecstatic when we won an amazing prize for Best Individual Song for our version of Beyonce's Daddy Lessons. We were very proud of this song as we workshopped it and arranged it ourselves which allowed us to include influences of another Beyonce song Pray You Catch Me. We channelled our inner Beyonce and stepped out of our comfort zone with this song, and so, we're glad all the hard work paid off! The prize involves Ollie Lambert, the Composer in Residence for the aca-weekend, arranging us a piece and we're very much looking forward to collaborating with him! We also sang our old favourite Blackbird, a new favourite One Day I'll Fly Away and the stunning One Last Song. We're lucky to have excellent footage of our performance as recorded by FloVoice so make sure to check it out on YouTube.
Síonra is the product of like minded Irish musicians drawn together through a shared passion for close harmony a cappella singing. The all female vocal ensemble flourished in the summer of 2014 after years of friendship and singing together in other contexts.
Síonra's versatility allows for an incredibly adaptable and diverse variety of styles and genres including; folk, classical and original arrangements of contemporary popular works, appealing and accessible to all. Individually, the members possess many notable achievements such as international tours and performing successes on a collection of prestigious stages. They draw upon these collective experiences to create a unique blend of musicality and personality. They liken themselves to the calming atmospheric elements, thus giving origin to their name;
