The California Golden Overtones are the premier all-female a cappella group at the University of California, Berkeley. Founded in 1962, the Overtones have recorded multiple albums, most recently "No Boys Allowed," and placed second in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) in 2001.

The Overtones have also recently been named one of “the 10 Female Groups Running the A Cappella World” by College Magazine. However, the greatest fans in the world the Overtones perform for are Cal students, for whom they've sung for more than 40 years.

The Overtones can be found performing regularly at Cal Football games and University functions, as well as all around the Bay Area at private events and parties. Come watch the Overtones perform live in front of the Sather Gate, every Friday at 1pm!
