YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - Mount Marty College’s vocal a cappella group has been selected for an eighth straight year to be part of an international competition.

The group Smooth Benediction will travel to Springfield, Missouri, in February to participate in the Midwest quarterfinal of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella. Mount Marty’s group will go against nine other colleges from Missouri, Nebraska, and Kansas.

The school in Yankton says Smooth Benediction is a highly selective a cappella choir in the collegiate “Pitch Perfect” style, singing primarily top billboard charts, musical theater and popular oldies.

The International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella takes place from January through April. Groups from across the U.S. and Europe compete for a chance to sing at the historic Beacon Theatre in New York City during the final round.
