Who We Are
The BU Allegrettos are a student-run, all-gender a cappella group here at Boston University. Our performances feature alternative pop with an R&B influence while drawing upon the dynamic and creative talent of each of our members to create a unique and distinct sound. Known for being collaborative souls, 'Grettos love making music and friendships with other a cappella groups across the country and on campus. In 1994, the Allegrettos, originally a comedy group, set aside our cheesy jokes for fiery notes... mostly. Inspired by a love of singing with friends, the Allegrettos can now be found performing at events on and off-campus, competitions, and charities all year round (we even sang for President Obama at the White House in 2016!) We also recently competed in the 2019 International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA's). If there is one thing that the Allegrettos love more than each other, it's recording our music. In the 2020-2021 academic year, we recorded our third studio album, "7 Wadsworth" and are looking forward to releasing our new single this semester and recording another single this year. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, 'Grettos still managed to record and deliver stellar virtual performances. Our new direction includes intricate arrangements, a wide array of genres, and a whole lot of energy!
*This semester, we are seeking beatboxers, basses, and tenors, but ALL voice parts are welcome and encouraged to audition*
