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?
Astha A Capella, and February 11th.
How long has your group been around? Have you competed before?
11 years, and yes we have!
Why are you competing this year? What does your group hope to accomplish or get out of the experience?
We always love competing at ICCA's. Our goal each year is to place. This year we believe we have what it takes.
How is your group preparing for competition?
We plan on stepping up our choreo game. That is always where we lose points and we have a member that has dance experience and is willing to start earlier than normal.
If you were to describe your group, or the set your group is planning for competition with just three words, what would they be?
Bold, Fresh, Unique.
