KJ 50th is coming!

KJs 50th Anniversary Save The Date.jpg

Dear KatzenFamily,

We invite you to SAVE THE DATE for the 50th anniversary KatzenReunion, officially slated for Friday, October 27 through Sunday, October 29, 2023 at Princeton!

We are excited to celebrate this major milestone, to gather and sing with dear friends and fellow Katz, and to create new memories that will carry the group through the next 50! By announcing the dates two years in advance, we are hoping to maximize the turnout from our 200-plus alumni community. Tell your fellow Katzenjammers all to attend!

We are planning on a big capstone concert, another collaboration with the wonderful singers of the Trenton Children’s Chorus, and some group meals, as well as downtime to spend together. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to contact us at, the sooner the better.

For those who might not be able to travel to Princeton twice in a short time, we also plan to have several Katzen50th events in addition to the usual arch sing and after-party at Princeton Reunions that year, May 25 through 28, 2023.

If you have any photos or videos you want to archive or share with us so we can use them for the 50th, please send those our way via email (at, text, WeTransfer, Google Drive, Dropbox, or any other file-sharing platform.

Katzenjammer 45th Anniversary!

45th Anniversary Celebration: Save the Date!!

The 45-year storied history of the Princeton Katzenjammers, the oldest coed a cappella group in at least the Ivy League if not all plant-based leagues, will be feted with mirth, togetherness, and songs for all genders over Columbus Day weekend 2018, October 5–8.

Katzen-reunion events will take place primarily on Saturday, October 6 and Sunday, October 7. Some hellos will be said on Friday, October 5 and goodbyes on Monday, October 8. Working around the busy schedule of Richardson Auditorium, we were able to secure Sunday, October 7 for our now-traditional blowout concert featuring the ever-lengthening march through the group’s musical history. To accommodate those who must return home to work on Monday, we plan to hold the concert in the late afternoon.

Watch this space for donation links during the spring fundraising drive, and then for the registration link in the summer.

Fine job, KJs!
