The Princeton Footnotes were founded in 1959, when a small group of undergraduates within the University Glee Club broke away to establish the third a cappella singing group on campus. Starting out as entertainment for Glee Club parties, the Footnotes quickly gained popularity and began to make appearances at Glee Club performances, University eating clubs, and colleges along the East Coast. This year, the Footnotes are celebrating their fiftieth year of bringing fresh all male a cappella to audiences all over the world.
Today, the Footnotes are known nation-wide and throughout Europe. Nationally and internationally recognised as a top quality performance group, the group has always been innovators in cappella. For instance, the Footnotes ranked third in the National Collegiate A Cappella Championship Semi Final and were honored with a track on BOCA – the Best of Collegiate A Cappella
In recent years, the Footnotes have sung at Yankee Stadium, the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, the American Ambassador’s Residence in London, a private Christmas party for David Rockefellor, a special radio show on WERS Boston, and the Presidential Inaugural Ball for former Pres. Bush Snr. in Washington, D.C. The Footnotes have taken their music across the United States, from Maine to California, and have ventured abroad to exotic destinations like Italy, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Mexico, Great Britain, the Far East and St. Lucia in the Caribbean.
Light refreshments will be served.
The Art of Healing Performing Art Series is made possible by the generous support of the Emmert Hobbs Foundation, Inc.
