About

The Potsdam Pitches are SUNY Potsdam’s oldest mixed voice A Cappella group. The Pitches were founded in 2007 by just four students as the first mixed voice a cappella group on campus and since then, they have had over 100 Pitches be apart of the group!

Once The Potsdam Pitches had started to become more involved in the a cappella world, they started competing in a competition called the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA). Since The Pitches started competing in 2009, their group has flourished. In Spring 2018, for the first time ever, The Potsdam Pitches went to the ICCA Finals in New York City at the Beacon Theatre. The final stage of this competition represents the 10 best a cappella groups in the world that have competed that year. The Pitches were beyond honored to participate in this event and meet groups from all over the world.

The Pitches also love to spread their love of a cappella through touring to various schools and other places in the community around New York! We love performing for diverse groups of people from all over the state and giving masterclasses to students of all ages at the schools that we visit, teaching everything from Disney classics to current pop songs!

The Pitches would like to thank their friends, family, alumni, community, school, and colleagues for the support they have been given. The Pitches would not be the group they are today without their biggest supporters. Here’s to many more years of Pitches!
