who we are
The Class Notes are Cornell's oldest existing co-ed a cappella group, having been founded in 1983. Though we were originally founded as a jazz group, we've since grown to sing everything from Rihanna to Hozier to Amy Winehouse. We perform on campus, the greater NY area, and also go on tour every year to various parts of the world. Previous tours have been to Jamaica, Canada, Miami, Boston, Virginia, and more.
Through the years our crazy concert themes, sharp choreography, and love for Buffalo Wild Wings have led us to find a place in the hearts of many a Cornellian. The Class Notes have been featured on multiple best-0f-a-cappella albums, are ICCAs semifinalists, and also have won multiple awards at ICCAs including (most recently in 2019) “Best Arrangement” for Japanese Denim by Daniel Caesar. We recently released our 12th studio album “Here", which is currently available to stream on Spotify! If you'd like to join the Class Notes, come hang with us at auditions! Until then, enjoy the site and thanks for stopping by.

If you like to jam out and have fun, you've come to the right place. We hold auditions during the first week of classes in the fall and spring and we can't wait to hear what you've got! Auditioning is simple and low stress: just prepare a verse and a chorus of a song that you feel shows off your voice. If you beatbox or have any other special talents we'll want to see those too. Pick any 1 audition day from the options below. See you there!
