The Varsity Vocals International Championship of A Cappella is the only international tournament that showcases the art of student a cappella singing. Hosted by Berklee's own award-winning group, Pitch Slapped, young vocalists have the opportunity to showcase their talent to an international audience and develop relationships with each other, cultivating the art of a cappella singing and a lifelong love of music.

Programs include both the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) and the International Championship of High School A Cappella (ICHSA), and both are dedicated to providing top-notch collegiate a cappella groups with valuable feedback from our highly qualified judges.

Each year, the tournament takes place from January through April in six regions: West, Midwest, South, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, and Europe. Each region holds several quarterfinal events. The top two college groups at each quarterfinal advance to college semifinals, and the top high school group advances to high school semifinals. The winner of each semifinal is invited to participate in finals, held in the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where they compete for cash prizes and the coveted title of Grand Champion.
