Ithacappella Ends the Year on a High Note

Written by 6/26/2008


Thousands of people watching. 175 teams competing. One winning performance.

Ithacappella, Ithaca College’s all male a cappella group, placed fourth in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, besting the likes of Penn State, Northwestern, and Oxford University. The group performed at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City last April after taking first place in the mid-Atlantic semifinals held at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, earlier in the month. Each competing team had 12 minutes to give their best performance, and members of Ithacappella gave it their all with three of their favorite songs: “Get Ready” by the Temptations, “Welcome to Paradise” by Green Day, and “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder.

See Chris Rossi '08 and Alec Giggi '09 lead the group in a finger-snapping performance of "Get Ready" at the 2008 ICCA semifinals.

Ithacappella was named best all male a cappella group in the competition. Freshman Nate Tao and sophomore Chris Lee shared the award for outstanding soloists for “Isn’t She Lovely” and sophomore Robert Dietz won the award for best vocal percussion for the entire song set.
