The Dartmouth Sings is Dartmouth College's premier pop and alternative a cappella group.
Since the group's founding nearly a decade ago, the Sings have prided themselves in their commitment to extending
membership on the sole basis of vocal excellence and performance. Upholding this standard has continuously distinguished us
as a remarkably diverse and undeniably talented organization on campus.
The members of the Sings perform all of their own arrangements and choreography, with an eclectic repertoire spanning the genres of contemporary pop, folk, R&B, musical theatre, alternative, and Dartmouth traditionals, among others. The group tours the nation annually, and has performed at various venues in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Honolulu, New York, Chicago, and Boston.
While originally named after Stephen Colbert’s fictional Dartmouth a cappella group, The Sing Dynasty, the group abbreviated its name to The Sings in 2018. Later that year, the Sings released their second album, entitled “Convocation”, following the release of their first album, entitled “Ask Me About My Flannel”, in 2013.
Each fall, offers of membership are extended to selected students following a competitive audition process.
The Sings smile in delight during a wonderful performance at the Windsor Castle! This show marked a terrific experience in the Sings' first ever international tour. While touring London, the Sings also performed in venues such as the Great Osmond Street Hospital, the Dartmouth Club of London, and the Royal Free Hospital.
Every sophomore summer, the members of the Sings invite the campus to audition and participate in a relaxed a cappella experience called the Summer Sings. This summer, the Summer Sings traveled to Martha's Vineyard where they hung out, relaxed on the beach, and performed at the Federated Church in Edgartown with The Vineyard Sound.
