We are the principal co-ed jazz a cappella group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Currently an 18-member undergraduate RSO, No Strings Attached was founded in 1994 by students from a campus theater group. Since then, we have recorded several CDs, taken fourth place at our 2019 ICCA Quarterfinal at Illinois State University, and performed all over the midwest, from Chesterton, Indiana to the western suburbs of Chicago.
We perform all across the state for many different events and organizations. Although we specialize in jazz, we’re known for our wide variety of music which ranges from pop hits, to indie rock. Although our members pursue a variety of majors, all are dedicated and talented musicians. Whether you're a longtime fan, a curious first-time visitor, or one of our beloved friends and family, welcome!
