About Us

Our History

Mixed Co singing at the Vatican

In the fall of 1981, a small group of Yale undergraduates found themselves torn between the call of sketch comedy and the allure of a cappella singing. Unable to decide between these two competing activities, they decided to form a new group that incorporated the best elements of both. A silver-plated fruit bowl served as a makeshift tap-cup (a necessity for any official group), and thus the original class of Mixed Company was born.

Since then, we have shifted our focus away from sketch comedy and devoted ourselves more seriously to singing, although we still allow our unique brand of humor to shine through during on-campus concerts. Now in its 32nd year of existence, members of Mixed Company have sung for world leaders, produced fourteen studio albums, and performed for audiences on five continents.
