About Varsity Vocals

Varsity Vocals has been the home of a cappella since 1995. We give singers in high school and college (and beyond!) the opportunity to interact, compete, learn from each other, get feedback from the pros, and perform in fantastic venues around the globe.

We believe that competition fosters growth — both in vocal performance and personal development. Our singers work hard and pull together to create incredible music and form lasting relationships.

The ICCA — that’s the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella — takes place from January through April. It’s a bracket system, with quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals. It was founded in a college dorm room in 1996 and has since grown to include 450 groups competing in nine regions in the U.S. and Europe. Finals are in the PlayStation Theater in Times Square.
