Long ago -- well, really only around Fall 1989 or so -- the Generics, the all-male a cappella group on campus, decided that it would be wonderful to have an all-female a cappella group, too. And so the Treblemakers were born: the oldest all-female a cappella singing group at the University of Maryland!
The Trebs released their very first album, TMone, in the spring of 1996. One of the tracks, "Walking on Broken Glass," was chosen to be on the Best of Collegiate A Cappella (BOCA) album for that year. They have released three live albums and three more studio albums since then, including Silence Your Phones (2008), Another Song You Say? (2009) -- which is now available on iTunes! -- and Now Back to the Good Part... (2012).
More recently, in the spring of 2010 the Treblemakers traveled to Wake Forest University for their "Rockin' the Forest" a cappella competition. Out of five talented groups, the Trebs took first place by winning "Best Overall Performance!" The Treblemakers also had their song "That's What You Get" nominated by CARA for "Best Female Collegiate Song." The song then made it onto Voices Only 2010 CD.
The Trebs also competed in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) for the first time in 2012, where they placed fourth in the quarterfinals!
