The Harpur Harpeggios, more commonly referred to as The Pegs, is the only all female a cappella group at Binghamton University in Binghamton, New York.

History and Tradition[edit]

The Harpur Harpeggios were founded in 1983 by a member of the Harpur Chorale, alongside their all-male sister group, Binghamton Crosbys. The Pegs perform a wide variety of styles of music, from 60s classics to songs on the radio today. They present one big show each semester, along with performing at events on campus and in the Binghamton community. The Pegs also go on an annual Winter Tour, performing at schools, nursing homes, and events in the New York area.

They have competed in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) five times, most recently in 2013. In 2005, they advanced to the Semifinals held at Yale University, at which they placed third.

Alumni Songs[edit]

"Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" by The Andrews Sisters and "As Cool as I Am" by Dar Williams are currently the Pegs' alumni songs. They are sung at every semester show and often feature visiting alumni as the soloists.
