Singing since 1952, the Chattertocks are one of the most popular femme-identifying a cappella groups in the nation. They have recorded several CDs and competed successfully in the National Championship of Collegiate A Cappella since the competition's inception in 1996. In fact, in 1998 the Tocks made it to the ICCA finals, which were held in Carnegie Hall! In more recent years, the Tocks have maintained their rich tradition of excellence, taking home "Best Album" and "Best Song" in the 2004 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards, and have gone on tour all across the eastern seaboard, from Kentucky to Maine. In 2011 a Chattertocks song was selected for the Best of College A Cappella 2011 CD by Varsity Vocals, a national honor. Today, the Tocks continue to uphold a supportive and diverse musical tradition.

Founded in 1949, the Jabberwocks is Brown University's oldest a cappella group. Aside from regular appearances at Brown and college campuses nationwide, the Wocks have performed for a wide variety of audiences. The group has sung everywhere from Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to Shea Stadium and Steven Tyler's birthday party. The group also travels extensively – both domestically and internationally – to cities such as Chicago, Nashville, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Seoul and Hong Kong.
