In case you have not already heard, In Achord won third place in what was referred to as the most competitive International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) Quarterfinal in the entire country at the Berklee College of Music on February 16, 2014.
Talented groups from all over the Northeast were scheduled to compete in the ICCA Quarterfinal at Berklee on Saturday, February 15, but due to extreme weather conditions the event was rescheduled for the following evening. Although the date change originally had us worried that family, friends, and fans who had been planning to attend the show on Saturday would not be able to make it on Sunday, everything worked out and we had a full crowd cheering us on.
In Achord’s impressive three-song set consisted of Downfall by Matchbox 20, Choices by Bernhoft, and Gypsy by Lady Gaga. We blew the audience and judges away with our outstanding soloists, complex arrangements, and fun choreography.
Pitch Slapped from the Berklee College of Music won first place in the competition and all-female group Pitch, Please from Northeastern University placed second. In Achord is so honored to have competed with such talented groups and we cannot wait to see the top two groups compete in the Northeast Semifinal on March 29 at the Berklee Performance Center.
We are so proud of what we have accomplished this semester and excited to continue providing our fans with the best a cappella entertainment we can possibly create!
