Columbia Campus

About Us

The Metrotones are Columbia University’s all female a cappella group, founded in 1983, when Columbia became a coeducational institution. Waxing eloquence, they are dedicated to developing into a premier singing institution, sharing and spreading their musical talent and entertainment value to as many audiences as possible in a variety of venues in and outside New York. They perform at a wide variety of venues and events all over New York City, holding informal study breaks with other university a cappella groups, raising money for Hurricane Katrina victims, entertaining middle school children, celebrating Women's History Month, and spreading Easter cheer in Central Park. At heart, the Metrotones are a group of friends who love a cappella and aspire to bring the Columbia community together with charm, chords and choreography. They have already sung to complete strangers on Columbia campus, at the request of students from other universities, to some degree of success! They are open to all kinds of singing adventures, and would love to hear from YOU, whether you have questions about auditions or concert opportunities! Feel free to contact us!
