The Princeton Footnotes are a low-voice a cappella group from Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey.[1] The Footnotes are a student-run, semi-professional performance group that generally consists of ten to twenty members. The Footnotes hold auditions for first-years and sophomores twice during the school year.[2] They are a part of Princeton University's "Acaprez" a cappella organization, which includes the Nassoons, Tigertones, Katzenjammers, Roaring Twenty, Tigerlilies, Tigressions, and Wildcats.

The Footnotes came in third in the National Collegiate A Cappella Championship Semi-Final in 2000. The group also was recognized by the Contemporary A Cappella Society through their selection of the Footnotes' rendition of "Boogie Down" for their "Best of College A Cappella Volume 1" album.[3] They have performed for President George H. W. Bush at the White House, Lee Iacocca at Chrysler, and the New Jersey Lottery.

They appeared on Season Four of The Sing-Off.[4]

In 2014, the Footnotes were selected for BOCA's "Best of BOCA: The First 20 Years" album for their arrangement of "Boogie Down" by Al Jarreau.


The Footnotes perform a wide range of musical styles, including jazz, classical, and pop. The group's repertoire is chosen and arranged by members. Though mostly constituted of cover songs, the group occasionally performs originals written by members of the group.
