The Princeton Tigertones

Founded in 1946, the Tigertones are Princeton University's signature a capella group. For over sixty-five years the Tones have sought to maintain a culture of good friends and good music, bringing this spirit to audiences across the globe. 


Great music is what brings the Tigertones together, and maintaining musical excellence is the group's highest priority. The Tigertones' repertoire consists of over 50 songs that span time periods and genres. Every song in the repertoire was arranged by a current or former member of the group.


The Tigertones perform for thousands of people across the globe every year, and have appeared at the White House, Carnegie Hall, and even an NFL game. The group has recently traveled to England, Puerto Rico, France, Brazil, Scotland, and Bermuda, and is currently planning a Fall 2014 tour to China.


The Tigertones' rich history makes the group a special experience. Innumerable traditions - among other things, an annual trip to Bermuda, campus arch sings, and certain songs themselves - serve both to create a distinctive group culture and to unite young and old Tigertones across generations.
