Originally founded in a residence hall basement in 2003, Distilled Harmony has grown into one of Northeastern's most recognized a cappella groups. Despite such humble beginnings, Distilled Harmony has made a name for themselves with award-winning performances at competitions like the famed International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA). The music they perform, which ranges anywhere from mainstream pop to indie rock, reflects the group’s members, who come from many different backgrounds and academic disciplines to create music together as a unified a cappella force. Distilled Harmony strives to have fun and entertain audiences with their novel take on collegiate a cappella.
Some of our most notable accomplishments in recent years include:

• 1st Place at 2017 ICCA Quarterfinal at Tufts University

• Featured in Voices Only 2016 Vol 2 album with “Say You Love Me"

• Best Mixed Collegiate Song in 2016 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award (CARA) for “Nothing Feels Like You”
