The UK finals of the International Competition of Collegiate A Cappella – the legendary sing-off from the Pitch Perfect trilogy – are almost upon us.
Shunning instrumentation for inspired all-vocal arrangements, the contest brings together the most talented singing groups from UK universities to be crowned the aca-kings-and-queens of these green isles.
The stakes are high, as the winners will go onto perform at the ICCA International Finals in New York later this year, with a shot at becoming, officially, the greatest college a capella team on the planet. (That’s exactly what happened to The Techtonics from Imperial College London when they lifted the trophy in 2016!)
There’ll be nine different groups performing – currently fighting for their places in regional competitions around the country – whittled down from thirty original groups. With over 100 performers taking part, you can expect mind-bending medleys and quirky re-arrangements of all your fave pop hits from some of the most awesome young vocalists out there.
It all goes off on March 9, 2019 at the lovely New Wimbledon Theatre, and tickets are on sale now for just £15.
