Founded in 1973 by members of Princeton's single-sex a cappella groups, the Katzenjammers started the tradition of co-ed a cappella singing as the oldest co-ed group in the Ivy League.
Their diverse repertoire and wide range of voices formed the basis of a new, versatile style of singing that set them apart from the many single-sex groups nationwide.
45 years later, the group continues to value variety in its music for the purposes of both entertainment and musical integrity, with their current repertoire consisting of a vibrant mix of jazz, pop, and classical music. Nearly all of the group's music has been arranged by members of the group, either past or current, and after touring Montreal, Boston, and Miami over the past few years, they are excited to bring their music to the Bay Area.
