We gathered together in the spring of 2019 just to explore the possibilities and level of interest in creating a unique mixed-voice a capella ensemble. Each of the original singers had years of a capella experience and had sung with both choruses and quartets as well as were participants in competitive events across the country. After a few rehearsal we liked what we heard.
The brainchild of this effort became Mixed Company Singers which now pursues precision a capella without style or genre limitations. Our current repetoire includes selections from barbershop, jazz, gospel and contemporary composers.
For the modest first season all members were selected through auditions and we kicked off our season inthe fall of 2019. We've had the pleasure of performing at the Union Depot in St Paul, MN and the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minnesota as well as participated in collaborations with both men's and women choruses.
In the Age of Covid, like many groups, we went on hiatus until society could figure out how we could emerge from the pandemic. In the interim, we were challenged with how to keep the group together. After ongoing planning, we restarted in May, 2021 and haven't missed a beat since.
