From The Web's picture

Tickets to this Saturday’s International Championship of Collegiate a Cappella reportedly sold out within 11 hours of going on sale.

“It’s all the people who have seen ‘Pitch Perfect’ or ‘The Sing-Off’ and they’re excited to see a cappella,” says Amanda Newman, executive director of Varsity Vocals, the organization that produces the show. “They didn’t even know anyone who was competing [at the time of purchase]!”

But now it’s clear which six undergraduate teams are competing: Pitch Slapped from Berklee College of Music hopes to crush it with their mix of pop and indie to fill their 12-minute set, says sophomore and business manager Nathan Hartono. The tenor points out instead of performing “just top 40,” they’ll “mix it up like crazy” with selections that range from Justin Timberlake to Lauren Mvula.
