Chaverim (Friends) is the only Tri-College, co-ed international a cappella group with members from Swarthmore, Haverford, and Bryn Mawr Colleges. We sing songs from many countries, including traditional folk songs, rock and popular music, and original compositions. Our purpose is to bring music from many cultures and traditions to all three colleges, to interact with diverse cultural and musical groups at Swarthmore, Haverford and Bryn Mawr, and, most importantly, to sing. Chaverim is a unique group in that it fosters interaction among the three colleges and shares world musical culture with the tri-college community.
