Known as Cornell's most electrifying a cappella group, the Key Elements are like no other group on campus. Unconventional? Check. Innovative? Check. Always pushing the envelope? That's a given.
We sing everything from rock classics to alternative jams to the latest hits. We put on concerts twice a year, Rocktoberfest in the fall and Brave the Elements in the spring, and try to do a tour and a retreat once a year. Our focus is on making good music and having fun doing it!
