When & Where
The Octāves were founded in 1990 as part of a senior project. The name "The Octāves" came from the musical term "octave", and served as a clever reference to the school mascot, the Richmond Spiders (spiders have eight legs). Over the past 22 years, The 'Taves have consistently been a part of campus life at The University of Richmond. As time progressed, so did the quality of the group, and they began moving their talents off campus, performing all over the east coast and at various events, from non-profit community concerts to meetings of top Secret Service employees.
They brought their talents to the recording studio as well after a couple of years, and today, The Octāves are proud to offer 11 complete albums. Their most recent album, "Ricochet," was released in the spring of 2013. These critically acclaimed albums have been recognized nationally, receiving nominations for the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards (CARA) and making appearances on the Voices Only and Best of College A Cappella (BOCA) compilations.
Today, The Octāves continue their quest for greatness, as they continue to perform on and off campus, and plan the recording of their next album. They will continue to work hard toward their goals for as long as there is music to be sung. The Octāves are proud of their history and they would like to offer huge thanks to their fans. Without them, there would be no history at all.
