On April 27, a brand new ICCA Champion will be named at the Playstation Theatre in New York City.

Each of this year’s groups brings a different set of talents and strengths – which group will rise to the top? Will the ScatterTones or The Originals finally outdo their previous 2nd place finishes? Will longtime strong competitors like The Trills, the N’Harmonics, and The G-Men learn from their past attempts? Or will a newcomer surpass them all?

Seats in the theater are sold out, but there is a livestream and we’ll be sure to bring you a full recap!
