Ramifications is the premier, award winning a cappella group on VCU's Monroe Park Campus. Founded in 2009, the group started out as the 'Compass Singers', but officially changed their name to the Ramifications by the Summer of 2010.
Nine years later, the Ramifications have only grown in talent and notoriety, and have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with on VCU's campus. The Ramifications host Richmond Rhythm, Virginia's very own annual collegiate a cappella invitational, and have competed and performed all around Virginia. In 2018, they were the first group from Virginia Commonwealth University to advance to the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA), and in 2020 placed 2nd at the ICCA Mid-Atlantic Regional Quarterfinal, securing themselves a spot in Semifinals.
The Ramifications have just released their first full-length studio album, Genesis, which can be found on all streaming platforms (e.g. Spotify, Apple Music) and hard copy albums can be purchased from the group for $15. They have also just released the music video for one of their recorded tracks, Cellophane, which can be found on their YouTube channel. They are so excited to share all their hard work with you — to stay up-to-date on everything they're doing, be sure to follow the rest of their social media accounts!
