Meet Molly Trueman '24:

Molly, a rising sophomore at Princeton, plans on majoring in music with a potential certificate in Applications of Computing. Outside of class, she is part of Glee Club, Chamber Choir, and the Tigressions, a contemporary all-female a cappella group. While she has been practicing voice and piano since age six, within the past year—especially during quarantine—she has become more passionate about songwriting and music production, leading her to create music for this podcast.

Meet the Princeton Footnotes:

The Princeton Footnotes have been providing fresh, all-male a cappella to Princeton University for more than half a century. Founded in 1959, the group's repertoire spans decades of music and an astounding variety of genres: from Frank Sinatra to Taylor Swift to Phish. The Footnotes was recently selected as a top 32 collegiate a cappella group from more than 160 video entries in the first-ever UpStaged National Collegiate Performing Arts (NCPA) A Capella competition to raise funds for a social justice organization of their choice. [Source: The Daily Princetonian]
