The Octāves

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 'Tāves 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.

Every Spring The Octāves host Spring Fever, the biggest a cappella event of the semester at The University of Richmond.  For 18 years Spring Fever has brought in some of the best a cappella groups from around the country to perform alongside The ‘Taves, and the weekend event promises to bring in many more in the future.
