A Sharp Arrangement was formed at SUNY Potsdam by female students in the spring of 1994. We are an award-winning group, placing 3rd in the 2011 and 2014 ICCA Quarterfinals and receiving Outstanding Soloist in 2014. We also placed 2nd in the 2019 and 2020 Quarterfinals and receiving Outstanding Soloist in 2020, advancing to Semi-Finals. Recently, we competed in the 2022 ICCA competition winning Outstanding Choreography. Sharps regularly consist of 12-18 treble singers that promote music and music education at SUNY Potsdam, and everywhere we tour.
