What do you get when the collegiate a cappella movement hits one of the most prestigious hotbeds of musical talent in the states?  The answer is Pitch Slapped, a coed group hailing from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.  Founded in 2006, this relatively young group has already made waves in the a cappella community and was the 1st runner up in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella of 2010.  Pitch Slapped marries its musical dexterity with a clear and brightly blended tone, deftly tackling diverse genres of music and musicians from the Beatles to Rihanna.  This group is certainly one to watch out for; to learn more about Pitch Slapped, visit their website at www.pitchslappedacappella.com, stay tuned for the premiere of NBC’s "The Sing-Off" on December 6th, and catch their rendition of “Joy to the World” which opens “The Sing-Off: Harmonies for the Holidays”.
