Noteworthy is a nine member female a cappella group, consisting of BYU students. Noteworthy was founded in 2003, when Esther Yoder decided it was time to create an all female a cappella group on campus. Yoder consulted with Bob Ahlander, co-founder and director of Vocal Point, a male a cappella group, and ultimately recruited Vocal Point members, Dave Brown and Dan Dunn to help create the new group.
In January 2004, Yoder, Brown, and Dunn oversaw the first auditions for the group. Brown served as conductor from 2004-05 and helped the group to go on its first tour, perform at a Utah Jazz game, and make its first appearance at the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella.
Since then, Noteworthy has released its debut album and has been recognized for their outstanding performances. They also appeared on NBC's The Sing Off in 2009.
In 2007, Noteworthy won first place at the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella. Noteworthy was only the second all-female group to ever win the competition.
