Elizabeth Banks, director of the upcoming film, acknowledged the group’s participation by tweeting, “Welcome to the @PitchPerfect 2 team, @thefilharmonic.”
Joe Caigoy, VJ Rosales, Jules Cruz, Trace Gaynor, Barry Fortgang and Niko Del Rey make up the six-man a Capella group that shot to fame after joining NBC’s “The Sing-Off” last December.
