Varsity Vocals Hosting ICCA Mid-Atlantic A Cappella Quarterfinal at Penn State

Freshman Convocation

Hold on to your matching hats and bow ties because Penn State is hosting the ICCA Mid-Atlantic Quarterfinal A Cappella competition on Feburary 9 in the HUB.

This Varsity Vocals event features 11 different a cappella groups, 5 of which are Penn State University-based groups. These include: Blue in the FACENone of the AboveThe Coda Conduct, The Pennharmonics, and The Statesmen.

Other schools competing include: The University of Rochester, Ithaca College, Lehigh University, Elizabethtown College, Rochester Institute of Technology, and Dickinson College.

Penn State certainly has a number of a cappella groups. Who knew they had five that are competition worthy? Plus, given the home field advantage, my money is on Penn State coming out on top.

The odds are in Penn State’s favor, so come out to support your fellow musically-gifted Nittany Lions in Alumni Hall, Feburary 9 at 8 p.m. Tickets are free for this event and you can find out more information via the Varsity Vocals Facebook Event.
