Supernovas

The Supernovas is Villanova’s oldest co-ed a cappella group. Since the founding in Spring of 1999, The supernovas have grown in size and sound and have developed a truly unique style of A Cappella. Singing music from artists such as Drake, Beyonce, Alessia Cara, and Ariana Grande, the Supernovas perform each arrangement true the artist's original sound while incorporating the distinctive Supernovas sound.

Throughout the year, the Supernovas perform at a variety of events on and off Villanova’s campus from basketball games to Villanova’s Special Olympics Fall Festival. In the past, the Supernovas have performed at benefit concerts for Hurricane Relief, at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia as part of the PIFA Festival and were invited to audition for NBC's The Sing Off.

The Supernovas have been performing competitively in the ICCA competition for the past 4 years and in the Spring of 2017, The Supernovas were the champions of the ICCA Mid-Atlantic Region Quarterfinals and 3rd in the ICCA Mid-Atlantic Semifinals. The Supernovas have also placed third in 2014 and won best arrangement.
