Our story begins with four graduate students in fall 2012, and a few glasses of beer at an undisclosed location. Realizing that grad life can be improved simply by singing, the founders decided to spread the love of music to the graduate population at the University of Michigan. They named us GradTONES, or “Graduate Troupe Of Needlessly Educated Singers.”
The goal of GradTONES is to provide an opportunity for graduate students throughout the University of Michigan to rehearse and perform unaccompanied vocal music (a cappella) from a variety of popular genres. We would love to have you along for the ride. Drop us a line if you are interested, or better yet, come to the mass meeting!
