The Binghamton Crosbys
The Binghamton Crosbys, founded in 1983, are the all-male a cappella group from Binghamton University. For almost thirty years, the Crosbys have been the university’s premier a cappella performance group, showcasing their talents every year in their Fall and Spring Jamborees. The group holds auditions at the beginning of every semester and have an established alumni base of over 150 artists, professionals and educators.
These singing fellows go on their annual winter tour through New York state, holding public performances and musical workshops with high school music classes. The Crosbys promote the a cappella community by participating in invitationals and joint concerts throughout New York, Pennsylvania and other nearby states. They are the most frequent appearing group in the International Championship for Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) finals round, qualifying four years and winning the championship round in 2003.
Binghamton’s premier performance group performs in local restaurants and bars for community members in Long Island, The Southern Tier, New York City and the rest of New York State. The group also regularly makes guest appearances for other student groups and administration around the university, having performed for the Binghamton Students for Students International Gala, Black Student Union’s Culture Shock Show, Binghamton University’s Presidential Inaugural Ceremony and they are the annual hosts for Binghamton University’s Parent’s Weekend.
The group upholds a standing tradition of balancing performances for students, families and professional gatherings. The Crosbys are proud to maintain high caliber, engaging presentations everywhere the travel and aim to continue this pursuit as well as expanding the potential of the group year after year.
