FAQ

We sing, rap and beatbox in the style of a cappella, which means that we use no instruments at all! We perform all over the city at events and showcase our music with a concert at the end of every semester.

What makes us different is our wide variety of music! We perform all types of music, ranging from R&B and indie rock to pop and hip hop. To ensure that our music accurately represents our diverse tastes, we vote on songs that we wish to perform at the end of every semester. Every song we perform was arranged by a present or past Chromatones member.

We rehearse as a full group for 4 hours per week. We also have some additional time commitments that run an hour or two per week. These include things like extra gigs around the city and mini rehearsals with each voice section.

In order to join, you will have to audition. Don’t worry, it’s not as scary as it seems! Our auditions vary based on what voice parts we need, but are generally held at the beginning of every semester. All you need to do is sign up for an audition time and prepare a 1 minute song of your choosing! Remember – no background tracks! We’re 100% a cappella!

You can check our facebook page to see what performances we have coming up. If you can’t make it to any of our events, you can also check us out on Spotify, Apple Music or Youtube!
