The Princeton Nassoons, Princeton University's a cappella group, will perform at 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20, at the Seabury Center, 45 Church Lane.

The group, founded in 1941 and the university's oldest singing group, has entertained many Presidents, the King and Queen of Jordan, many U.S. foreign ambassadors and thousands of other fans, according to a release.

Recent tours have taken them to Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, Bermuda and West Virginia's Greenbrier Resort. It has also performed at the White House, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and on "Good Morning America and the "Tonight Show."

It also just finished filming with Tina Fey for her new movie, "Admission," the release states.

Its repertoire covers a wide range of music from 1930s jazz numbers and classic hits to the more contemporary music of NSYNC and Ben Folds.

The group is comprised of 19 Princeton University undergraduates, and its songs feature four, five, and six-part harmonies, arranged almost exclusively by current and former Nassoons.

Tickets for this performance will be $25 for children under 18 and seniors over 70 and $35 for all other adults. Proceeds from this performance will go towards funding an intersession trip to Hong Kong.

In order to reserve your ticket, send a check made payable to the "Trustees of Princeton University" with "Nassoons" in the memo line to: Alan Southworth, 3719 Frist Campus Center, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544. There will be a guest list at the door.
