2015 Harmony Sweepstakes National Finals results

With the support of a full house of lively a cappella fans the National Finals were once again a rousing success.

The 2015 results are:-

National Champions - Straighter Road
2nd place - Timepiece Quartet
3rd Place - The Bluesette Quintet

Audience Favorite - Timepiece

Best Original Arrangement - “God Has A Way” - Kevin Kunz - Straighter Road

A special thanks to all the groups as each and every one of you were not only very talented, but also had the "Harmony Sweeps spirit" of being both supportive of, and friendly to each other. I watched Pitch Perfect 2 the other day (a fun movie to be sure) and thought to myself how glad I am that our events are not like those portrayed in the movie as being super competitive with groups glaring at each other and being mean.

The Harmony Sweeps has always been more about being a celebration of a cappella and the creative possibilities of the unaccompanied human voice. We just so happen to also be a competition. We believe in the word "harmony", both in voice and in spirit, and every group tonight were exemplary ambassadors of this philosophy. Thank you everybody!
