Acappella & Vocal Groups
The Fiddleheads are a student-run ensemble dedicated to learning and performing traditional and modern music from the Celtic isles. They are open to any interested musician without audition. They perform a few times a semester as well as take every opportunity to attend events and concerts in the Boston area.
The Toons are a coed, cross-campus a cappella singing group founded in 1990. We are comprised of MIT and Wellesley students who get together, harmonize, and make awesome music! Along with our notorious repertoire of cartoony songs, the Toons sing everything from the 50's to the present; from Sarah McLachlan to Simple Plan. What do you get when you mix Anita Baker with the Reel Big Fish? Team up Portishead with Pearl Jam? We're not sure either, but the audiences young and old seem to love it.
The Blue Notes
Founded in 1954, the Blue Notes are one of Wellesley College's premier a cappella groups. While our repertoire originally consisted of jazz music, it has evolved to include oldies, pop, rock, traditional, as well as blues. Known as the "funky" group on campus, our original choreography, varied repertoire, and fun, sassy members always bring a crowd. The Blue Notes host a main concert each semester as well as numerous small "teaser" performances throughout the year.
The Tupelos are an all-female a cappella singing group named after the romantic spot on Wellesley College's Lake Waban, "Tupelo Point." The Tupelos have been dishing out red hot a cappella goodness since 1949, presenting high-energy, aurally and visually stimulating shows up and down the East Coast and around Wellesley's campus.Link
The Wellesley Widows are a thirteen-voice a cappella singing group. We celebrated our 60th anniversary in 2009, making us one of the nation's oldest women's collegiate a cappella singing ensembles. Originally known as the Wellesley College Octet, we are proud to carry on a tradition of fine musical entertainment to audiences all over the United States as: The Wellesley Widows: Dressed to Kill since 1949.Link
