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?
Stampede A Cappella, February 18th
How long has your group been around? Have you competed before?
We were established in 2014 and this is our first time at ICCA.
Why are you competing this year? What does your group hope to accomplish or get out of the experience?
We hope to use ICCA as a goal to help us "up our game" so to speak and bring better performance quality to our community, and to add our unique style to the culture of collegiate a cappella.
How is your group preparing for competition?
We have been brainstorming set list ideas and talking about what we want to offer this year.
If you were to describe your group, or the set your group is planning for competition with just three words, what would they be?
Stampede is synchronized, innovative and dynamic.
