About Us

Pitches & Tones is an a cappella group founded at Yale University in 2011. We perform entirely member-arranged songs covering a variety of musical genres, including Pop, Rock, R&B, Traditional, Jazz, and more!

Our members come from all over the world and all sorts of musical backgrounds. We pride ourselves on maintaining a collaborative and constructive atmosphere while bringing fresh musicality to our repertoire. But above all, we love to share our passion for music with audiences both at Yale and beyond.
