Old Edwardian’s Crowdfunding Initiative

Old Edwardian Hiba Abuelgasim (Class of 2015), is a member of the oldest student acapella group in the UK, the Oxford Alternotives! Formed in 1993 as an alternative to the traditional Oxford choirs, the Alternotives consists of students from colleges across the university, from Brasenose, to Christchurch and St Catherine’s. The group has appeared in BBC1’s TV show Pitch Battle, has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the ninth year running and is this year competing in the semi-final of the International Championship of Collegiate Acapella. The group are raising money to send all of its members to the USA at the end of March to perform with American acapella groups in universities across the country.
