Founded in the spring of 2009 by four students, the Melodores prove relatively young compared to many of the collegiate a cappella groups across the country. And yet, despite this recent break into the a cappella world, they have made waves both domestically and internationally: from Los Angeles to New York City, from London to Thun, and from Chicago to Paris among other destinations, the Melodores pride themselves in their ability to balance student life at Vanderbilt with extraordinary musical integrity.
With a repertoire that spans multiple genres, the Melodores have competed in several a cappella competitions across the nation, including the International Championships of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA's), in which they placed third in the world at New York City's Lincoln Center.
In 2014, the Melodores were selected to be one of six groups to compete in Season 5 of NBC's hit show The Sing-Off. The Melodores went on to win The Sing-Off, the only collegiate champions in the show's history, taking home a $50,000 cash prize. They have kept themselves busy since, recording albums and touring the globe.
