Sounds of BU

September 3rd, 2013

We’re Chordially Yours, an all-female a cappella group at Boston University. We were founded by Beth Heald (’03) in 2000. Since the group’s introduction into the BU a cappella scene, we have competed in the Faneuil Hall A Cappella Fest (winning third place in 2007), as well as competing annually in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, or ICCAs (winning Best Arrangement for “Hide and Seek” in 2007, as well).


Keep Your Head Up

In 1995, Kol Echad’s founders, Shira Lipsky and Jack Kustanowitz, knew they wanted to be part of the Jewish A Cappella rage that was spreading to college campuses across the country. When they founded Kol Echad, Hebrew for “One Voice,” the group had nine enthusiastic members. Now, the group has grown in both size and in popularity. In 2007, Kol Echad celebrated 12 years of Jewish a cappella excellence with a Reunion Concert.



The Scarlet Band is a select ensemble that performs throughout the summer on the campus of BU and around Boston. The main purpose of the Scarlet Band is to represent the music-making opportunities available at BU to each New Student Orientation held throughout the summer.
