Who We Are
Established in 1990, In Achord is Boston University's premier all-gender a cappella group. In Achord annually competes in a cappella tournaments around the nation, most notably, the International Competition of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA). In 2016, In Achord won the ICCA Northeast Quarterfinal hosted at the Berklee College of Music, and then went on to place fourth at the Northeast Semifinal while getting the opportunity to sing on Boston Symphony Hall's stage. Most recently, In Achord has been placed on the Best of College A Cappella (BOCA) 2021 and 2023 Spotify Albums!
In addition to being a competitive a cappella group, In Achord is a family and loves to have fun along the way! In our free time, the members of In Achord can always be found hanging out, studying, and exploring the world together (yes, we’ve been to Barcelona). We also love to gig throughout the school year, whether that means performing with groups at neighboring universities, singing at weddings, or hosting our very own Beanpot of A Cappella every spring.
Over our 30 years as a student group at Boston University, In Achord has recorded several studio albums. Our most recent album, Motions, is now on Spotify, but be sure to keep a look out for a new album drop in spring 2024! We pride ourselves on our R&B & pop-inspired repertoire, our in-house arrangements, and our talented soloists. With a set ranging from Chance the Rapper to Beyoncé to H.E.R. to Janelle Monae, In Achord loves to perform at any and all events!
