Stiletta places 2nd in the closest competition of the 2017 International Championship of A Cappella Open Semifinals
On August 5th, Stiletta competed in the first season of Varsity Vocals’ brand new tournament, The International Championship of A Cappella Open. The girls placed 2nd at the Northeast Regional Semifinals, a mere 3 points behind Backtrack, who placed 1st. Stiletta’s beatboxer, MC Beats, also won Best Vocal Percussion for her performance in “Cinema”. All 2nd and 3rd place winners of the Semifinals were eligible to submit a video performance in hopes of receiving the Wildcard vote, which would allow them to still have a chance to perform at The 2017 Open Finals at Carnegie Hall. Stiletta submitted and placed 3rd, not quite high enough to get to Finals. The group will definitely try again to get to Finals next year!

“The Open” is an all-access a cappella tournament that aims to bring together singers and singing groups of all ages and stages of life to compete on an international stage. The 2017 competition featured nearly 600 performers in 65 groups from across 4 continents!
