The Chattertocks

The Chattertocks of Brown University is Brown’s longest-running a cappella group. Founded in 1952, the Chattertocks is also one of the oldest non-male a cappella singing groups in the United States. Today, the Chattertocks perform at many Brown University-sponsored events across the academic year and organize an annual tour traveling to various venues around the country. Typically, the Chattertocks perform music that can be categorized in the pop genre. The repertoire is also filled with songs that have been passed down for decades from earlier Chattertocks, including the classic jazz piece “My Funny Valentine.” The a cappella arrangements performed by the Chattertocks are usually self-composed, and arrangements of songs of any genre of music are welcomed and encouraged.
