In honor of the 2017 ICCA tournament, The A Cappella Blog pursued short interviews with competing groups to develop insights into why and how groups approach competition, and to get appropriately excited for the tremendous shows ahead of us.
What’s your group name and on what date is your group’s quarterfinal?
Squawkappella; February 25th, 2017.
How long has your group been around? Have you competed before?
We have been around since 2007 and yes we have been competing for quite a few years, now!
Why are you competing this year? What does your group hope to accomplish or get out of the experience?
We are hoping to diminish the idea that we are underdogs and wow the judges with our awesome set. It would be really awesome to go to semi's!
How is your group preparing for competition?
We are holding two weekend-long winter rehearsals over our winter break in January. These weekends are very long and intensive, and we use this time to fine tune our music and learn choreography!
If you were to describe your group, or the set your group is planning for competition with just three words, what would they be?
