Founded in 2010, VTone is Princeton’s first and only East Asian music group. “V" stands for the Roman numeral 5 and alludes to the pentatonic scale of traditional East Asian music. Their music aims to intrigue, inspire, and invigorate a worldly fusion of the arts. Every year, they explore genres ranging from ballads and J-rock to rap and K-pop. In the fall semester, VTone joins in Princeton’s traditional Fall Arch Sing to perform original a cappella arrangements, covers, and mash-ups composed by members. In their annual spring show, however, they don't limit themselves to a cappella. VTone also performs at on-campus venues throughout the year. All VTone music is arranged by current or former VTone members—in English, Korean, Chinese and Japanese. They bring new pieces to every performance!
