Smiffenpoofs, Vibes Ready to Jam at Boston Songfest


The Smiffenpoofs and the Vibes, two of Smith’s renowned a cappella singing groups, are sure to be in fine form the weekend of October 15-16, when they headline Faneuil Hall Marketplace’s College Songfest in Boston. The two groups were recently chosen among New England’s top a cappella groups to be part of the program.

From singers at Simmons College to those from Boston University, and Wheaton to College of the Holy Cross, 17 of the top a cappella groups from eight institutions in the region will hit the Faneuil Hall stage between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. both days at the city’s popular landmark.

The college groups, known for their high energy and enthusiasm, as well as their creative renditions of all manner of songs, will perform vocal arrangements of music by Billy Joel, Aerosmith, U2 and Bare Naked Ladies.

The Smith a cappella contingent is gearing up for the event with auditions and rehearsals since early September.

The Smiffenpoofs, the oldest female collegiate a cappella group in the nation, recently welcomed 10 new group members. “With all of the new energy and voices, we are so excited for this opportunity, and we can’t wait to represent Smith a cappella,” exclaims Jen Maurer ’07, a Smiffenpoofs member.

Sure to be a weekend of great music, featuring some of Smith’s finest talent, the College Songfest is open to the public free of charge—Sarah Gauché
