About this project

Long ago, (well, really only around Fall 1989 or so...), the all-male a cappella group on campus (the Generics) decided that it would be wonderful to have an all-female a cappella group existing on campus too. And so, the Treblemakers were born: the only -- and hey, what a coincidence -- the best all-female a cappella singing group at the University of Maryland.

In 2009, the University of Maryland Treblemakers released an album entitled “Another Song, You Say?” The album received a score of 4 out of 5 from the Recorded A Cappella Review Board (RARB) and went on to earn multiple CARA nominations, including "Best Female Collegiate Song" for our rendition of Paramore’s “That’s What You Get.” In 2010, this song then made it onto the Voices Only A Cappella compilation, which is comprised of selected excellent tracks released by various collegiate groups from around the world.

It’s a little more than a year later, and the Treblemakers are about to embark on a CD-making journey yet again! We hope to make another album that showcases stellar arrangements and group cohesion with songs by artists such as Maroon 5, Sara Bareilles, Wale, and Lady Gaga! On our previous CD we chose a University of Maryland alumnae David Gradin to record all of our tracks, and James Cannon, Ed Boyer and award winning-mixer Dave Sperandio of VocalSource to produce a high quality album. We would like to do so again, but that is where we need your help!

The Treblemakers are asking for your pledges so that once again we can share our excitement and dedication to a cappella music with our family and friends. Your contribution will help us yet again achieve a CD that is sure to earn the group recognition in the A Cappella community.
