A group after my own heart, License to Trill has made perhaps one of the biggest splashes recently in collegiate a cappella and beyond, turning heads left and right out of seemingly nowhere. License to Trill brings a freshness to college a cappella, and the community in general -- one where sheer determination and talented singers have catapulted this group into one of the greats. It's no wonder that License to Trill is nominated for two CARAs this year -- one for Christopher Diaz's Best Professional Arrangement for a Scholastic Group, and Best Mixed Collegiate Song.
The Yale University Spizzwinks(?) just might be a testament to the longevity of modern a cappella. With their trademark (?) appended to the end of their not-so-punny name, the Yale Spizzwinks(?) maintain being the nation's oldest underclassmen a cappella ensemble, while continuing to kill the game over a hundred years later. Like a fine wine, the Spizzwink(?) saga gets better with age.
From The Sing Off to the ICCA Finals Stage, Pitch Slapped has been a household name in a cappella for over a decade. People have always loved them for their classic black and white elegance and ability to turn basically any pop hit into a legendary, jazz-infused bop.

Every few weeks on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston, you'll spot a boy or two with a dashing red tie featuring an odd pattern - a series of tiny Abraham Lincolns. These unique pieces of formal wear are a long-standing tradition passed down through generations of the men of the Boston University Dear Abbeys.
