award winning a cappella
at Carnegie mellon university



Founded in 1996, The Originals have come to be known through the years for their inventive arrangements and choreography. Staying true to their name, they aim to bring a fresh perspective on a cappella to each performance.

The group has performed with Ben Folds and The Pittsburgh Pops Orchestra, opened a national barbershop convention at CONSOL Energy Center, and placed second at ICCA Finals in 2016.
