Singing Their Hearts Out

Pitches & Notes performs during the competition’s final round: “We are thrilled to bring these accolades home to UW.”

In April, the UW–Madison treble group Pitches & Notes made history, winning first place at the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) finals in New York City. Pitches & Notes is the UW’s first group to win that contest, as well as the first group from the Great Lakes region.

“We were so stunned,” says Hyunji Haynes ’22. “We are thrilled to bring these accolades home to UW and the greater Madison community. We could not have it done it without all the support!”

Ten groups from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom competed at the ICCA finals. Each prepared a 10-minute set and choreography.
