Mixed Company is a mixed-voice a cappella choral group from the Twin Cities area that was formed by experienced men and women singers with the goal to perform at a high level.
We keep the group small (20 - 24 singers) so it allows the ensemble to better execute every small nuance the music has to offer while providing our audiences a unique and exciting musical experience.
Our repertoire includes a wide variety of music styles and genres that offer challenge and reward to singers while appealing to any audiences. Our inaugural season began in the Fall of 2019.
Planting the seeds...
We gathered together in the Spring of 2019 just to explore the possibilities and gauge the level of interest in creating a unique mixed-voice a cappella ensemble. Each of the original singers had years of a cappella experience and had sung with award-winning choruses and quartets as well as were participants in competitive events across the country. After a few rehearsals we liked what we heard.
This brainchild became Mixed Company Singers which now pursues precision a cappella without style or genre limitations. Our current repetoire includes selections from swing, jazz, barbershop, gospel, and contemporary styles.
In the Age of Covid, like many groups, we went on hiatus until society could figure out how we could emerge from the pandemic. After eighteen months of planning, we restarted in May, 2021 and haven't missed a beat since.
Beginning with our first season, we've selected our members through annual auditions. Members have a variety of vocal backgrounds so having acappella experience isn't necessary when considering us.
To date, we've had the pleasure of performing at the Union Depot in St Paul, the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, the Hilton in Bloomington and have also collaborated with both men's and women choruses such as The Journeymen, City of Lakes, North Star Chorus and Ovation.
