This Saturday night, one of the most anticipated concerts of the year will take place. The finals of the International Championship of Collegiate A cappella will be held in New York City, with seven of the world’s most celebrated and respected scholastic groups facing off in a battle where only one winner (two runners-up and several outstanding individuals) will reign supreme.
This year, the ICCA finals will involve several A Cappella Records groups – The University of Georgia Accidentals (from the South), the University of California – Los Angeles ScatterTones (from the West) and University of Chicago Voices in Your Head (from the Midwest) earned three of the seven coveted spots in Saturday night’s show.
Each of these three groups stand as institutions, pillars in a community rife with incredible talents and stellar collaborative acts. And though we at ACR know them for their outstanding recordings, they also produce live shows that consistently wow audiences (as well as esteemed ICCA judges, it would seem).
All seven groups taking the stage at The Town Hall in midtown Manhattan are spectacular, and we wish everyone involved the best of luck. May the best group win!
