Pitch Perfect: A FREE Sneak Preview! With live performances by some of Cornell’s very own a cappella groups!
Beca (Anna Kendrick), a freshman at Barton University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school’s all-girls singing group. Injecting some much-needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
