The CharlieChords have been competing in the International Competition of Collegiate A Cappella since 2015.
In the 2019 ICCA season, the CharlieChords placed 2nd at the Northeast Quarterfinal, but did not advance beyond the semifinal round. The group received two special awards: Outstanding choreography in the quarterfinals, along with outstanding vocal percussion in the semifinal round.
The CharlieChords strive for advancement each year, with a goal of winning the ICCA finals. They have also competed at Boston’s annual Faneuil Hall A Capella Competition.
