Our Story


Fun. Love. Music.TREBS.

Co-Ed A Cappella since 1996

The Treblemakers were formed in 1996 around three fundamental ideals: fun, love, and music.  Since then, generations of Trebs have rallied around these values to become Boston University’s most irresistible co-ed a cappella group.

Dozens of alumni and current group members have produced seven studio albums, most recently The Teal Album and Songs For Billy, with more recordings soon to come!  In recent years, the Trebs have begun to curate many live music videos on the Treblemakers’ YouTube channel, marrying their live energy and musicality for all to view.  

The Treblemakers have performed at hundreds of gigs all around the Boston area and are available for hire! Whether it's an office party, a high school concert, or a fundraiser for charity, the Trebs would love to help round out your event.

Today, the group is known for its diverse repertoire, energetic performances, talented soloists, and innovative arrangements.  Since 2013, the Trebs have competed 3 times at the ICCA tournament, most recently advancing to the Northeast semifinals.  This upcoming vocal group has big plans, stay tuned on social media to see what’s in store!
