Wow. We cannot believe the ICCA is over.
This year we competed in Varsity Vocal’s International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA). We were extremely happy, excited, shocked, and proud to place 2nd and receive awards for Outstanding Arrangement and Outstanding Choreography at our Northeast Quarterfinal. With that, we were given the opportunity to perform at Boston Symphony Hall (wowZas) for our Semifinal amongst many other talented groups, including our neighbor’s, NU Distilled Harmony and NU Nor’easters. It was a surreal experience – one filled with hours and hours of hard work, intense rehearsals, laughter, cute outfits, suspenders, white, gold, and glittery nail polish, jaw-dropping surprises, and dance parties. Ultimately, it was an experience that brought us all closer as a family. From December 2016 to March 2017, we pulled together our talents and commitment and created a set we were so proud to perform.
We want to give a special shout-out to our arrangers, Charles Zheng and Nate Harms. These arrangements are masterpieces that took many many hours to create and perfect, and we would not be able to be where we are without your guidance. We also want to thank our Choreography team, whom consists basically half the group – you know who you are. Thank you for putting imagery to the story our songs tell. You guys rock. Finally, we’d like to thank our fans, friends, and family! Your support and cheers keep us strong.
We hope you enjoy watching our Semifinal performance, and ignore the shakiness!!
