Dr. Diane Orlofsky, Director of frequency, said the current group’s inspirations include Pentatonix, Groove for Thought, Accent and Pacific Standard Time.

“frequency began in 2009 as a response to the growing popularity of contemporary a cappella and ensemble vocal jazz groups,” Orlofsky said. “This group has had the privilege of working with some of the best of the best from around the country, and these vocal jazz pedagogues and professionals have helped them develop the signature sound and techniques that we have come to expect from frequency.”
