VOICES IN YOUR HEAD, University of Chicago’s premier co-ed A Cappella, has proven to be a consistent force in the world of singing. Placing 2nd at the 2015 ICCA Championship, and their new album LIGHTS being reviewed as one of the Best Albums of the Year, are only a few of their accolades.

FUNDAMENTALLY SOUND, the Midwest’s foremost all-male A Cappella group, is sky rocketing to success out of UW-Madison. The boys in suspenders can take the audience from laughter to tears at one stroke, and have proven their performance skill through ranking as a top group at ICCA Semi-finals for the past 4 years.
