The Haveners are Villanova’s original all-female a cappella group. We sing everything from Dua Lipa to Hozier to The Cheetah Girls, and perform all over campus for events like Special Olympics and Homecoming! We also have off-campus performances at other universities like St. Joe’s and University of Delaware, and even had the incredible opportunity to open for the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall these past two years. We were formed as a subgroup of the Villanova Voices, the female choral group on campus. Together with the Voices we perform at concerts each semester, sing the National Anthem at Nova basketball games, and go on tour to places like Spain and Montreal. Feel free to check out our website for more information!
