Fusion Advances to ICHSA National Finals

On Saturday, March 24th, Fusion clenched its spot for their 2nd ICHSA Finals appearance in the past 4 years.

After winning their Quarterfinal, along with Outstanding Choreography and Outstanding Soloist Awards, Fusion was one of 9 high school groups from across Texas, Arizona, and Colorado to compete in the Southwest Semi-final held at Marcus.

The International Competition for High School A cappella (ICHSA) is the largest competition of its kind, starting with over 300 groups from all across the country, and culminating in the National Finals in New York City. This year the Finals will be held at Alice Tully Hall at the famous Lincoln Center, home to The Metropolitan Opera and The Julliard School.

Fusion garnered a 1st place rating from all but one of the judges at the Semi-final round, as well as Outstanding Choreography and Outstanding Soloist again.  Wish them luck as they prepare for the Finals on April 20th!
