About Us

RISE is the premiere, co-ed a cappella group at University of Texas at Arlington. Known for their energetic performances, RISE has quickly become a growing success within their community of Arlington, TX. As the only contemporary pop A Cappella group on campus, RISE continuously strives to maintain the highest standards of musicality while still keeping their love for music fun and relevant. Pursuing excellence to the highest degree in all aspects of life, these students continue to grow daily as people, friends, and performers.

The group was founded in October of 2016 by Caleb Moore, a senior music media major. Currently there are 7 female and 7 male voices making up the RISE sound, and of course, a wonderful vocal percussionist rounding out the bunch. The ensemble is comprised of a diverse group of students from age, nationalities, and majors. In addition, RISE also performs a wide variety of music from rock, to pop, to jazz and R&B.

Whether it be flashmobbing at the University Center, to caroling down Greek Row, or to competing in international A Cappella competitions, RISE aims to please at each venue and leave an impression on every audience.

With only being in existence for a short time, RISE has ventured out to accomplish many things including competing in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCAs), recording a 5-track studio EP, touring local high schools to perform and educate on the subject of A Cappella singing, and establishing a presence on their own campus through various gigs and performances.


They share with each other not only the love of singing and performance, but also the desire for true friendships and bonding. RISE hopes to continue to inspire their audiences with fun and uplifting music.
