Why Support Us?

Over the past three months, Upper Structure has put in countless hours arranging, learning, and rehearsing our 10-minute choreographed set for the 2024 International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella. We are now proud to say that in addition to awards for Best Vocal Percussion and Best Arrangement, this set has earned us first place at the Northeast quarterfinals, and more recently first place at the Northeast semifinals, securing Upper Structure a spot in NYC at the ICCA Finals on April 27, 2024 to compete as one of the top 10 collegiate a cappella groups in the world. However, getting to New York is not cheap. We’re reaching out to the Berklee community for support in funding our trip. Your contribution will directly cover travel, accommodation, and competition expenses, ensuring we can represent Berklee on this global stage. Your support, regardless of the amount, will have a meaningful impact on our journey.

Our Story

Stretch Goal Announcement

Thanks to all of our donors' support, we have reached our goals of raising $2000 AND $3000 to make our trip to the ICCA Finals happen! We are so appreciative of your generosity and thrilled that we were able to not only meet, but surpass our original goal in less than 48 hours! Because of your generosity and excitement to support Upper Structure, we want to announce an increase of our goal to $4000. The additional money will help us to ensure that each and every member gets housing and transportation to and from the competition, accommodate any unexpected expenses that come up while in New York, and will fund future Upper Structure activities such as music releases, music videos, and acquiring new music. Upper Structure and a cappella as a whole is something so special to all current, past, and future members of the group and we are so excited to be able to continue the legacy that Upper Structure has built. Again, our sincere thanks go out to everyone who helped us meet our initial goal, and also to all future donors that help us reach $4000!
