So what do Colgate University and Princeton University have in common besides academic excellence?  Why a cappella singing excellence of course!  That's why for the past 17 years Light Opera of New Jersey (formerly Ridge Light Opera) has been sponsoring this kind of young singing talent for everyone in the region to enjoy! This year come to see the lovely and talented ladies of the "Tigressions" aligned by the handsome men of the well-known Colgate Thirteen. Although each sings a wide variety of popular music, you'll enjoy the subtle differences in the sounds of the all female and all male groups.

The Princeton University Tigressions was founded in 1981 by a group of undergraduate women eager to add a bold, new sound to Princeton's  rich a cappella tradition. Over the years, while developing a wide-ranging repertoire, the group has established a reputation for great music, originality, style and fun.

The Colgate 13The Colgate Thirteen (right), on the other hand, have been entertaining for more than 70 years, delighting audiences with fun, surprises, and some of the best male a cappella sound anywhere. Old and new musical favorites supply the Colgate Thirteen with an active repertoire of over 75 songs.
As Colgate University's own "ambassadors of good will", their unique blend of song and humor brings excitement to every audience.

LONJ believes that singing is for all people of all ages. Our warm-up groups this year will be the young men of Grace Church in Madison, "The Gargoyles," and their equally talented sister group, "The Daughters of Zion." Come join the fun and maybe even sing along some!
