The Cleftomaniacs is a Sydney-based all-female a cappella group.
The Cleftomaniacs (affectionately known as the “Cleffies”) is an all-female community-based a cappella group. Based in Sydney, we currently have around 15 members.
We share a love of singing together, performing and blending different vocal sounds and rhythms. Most often we sing in four-part harmony.
Our aim is to have fun, develop as performers and spread the joy of a cappella music. Our approach combines musicality with persistence and good humour!
We perform at public and private events. As we are not-for-profit, any fees charged are reinvested in the group.
The Cleffies’ repertoire spans the 60s, 70s, 80s, and up to the present day. It draws on a wide range of traditions - pop, jazz, folk, soul, blues and musical theatre. We also sing carols at Christmas time.
The Cleffies rehearse on Thursday evenings during school terms in Waterloo, Sydney, or at other Sydney locations.
