Tap Night: September 13, 2017
The Gump has grown yet again, and we are now proud to introduce our five new freshbagels: Aïssa Guindo, Kira Sze, Emma Rutan, Matthew Sáenz and Miles Goldenberg! We are so excited to sing with these lovely first years and have them as a part of the Mixed Co family this year and in years to come.
SUMMER TOUR: MAY 10-21, 2017
Post finals, Mixed Co. took a trip to Colombia. With the guidance of the Colombo Americano, we were able to perform in theaters in Medellín, Armenia, and Cali. We also got to sing with various choirs, participate in cultural exchanges, sightsee, and check out really cool restaurants, most notably Crepes and Waffles. Special thanks to Luísa and Jorge for coordinating our trip and being amazing guides!
Spring Tour: March 11-18, 2017
This Spring Break, Mixed Co went on a road trip! We started out driving to Albany, NY and sang at places like Albany High School and the Phoenicians Restaurant. Then, we braved a blizzard and crossed international borders to make our way to Toronto, ON. In between exploring the city and enjoying Canadian hospitality, we performed at several local nursing homes, like Schlegel Villages. On the way back, we stopped by Cornell University and sang with The Chordials, one of Cornell's a cappella groups. A special thanks to Donna and Peter Young, as well as Patty Young and Paul Schaffer for being amazing hosts!
Bulldog days: April 24-26, 2017
Bulldog Days was amazing this year -- we met so many prospective first-years at the Extracurricular Bazaar and had a great time at Open Rehearsal later that evening. It was so exciting to meet and sing for prefrosh interested in a cappella at Yale! Who knows, maybe we met the future members of Mixed Company!!
Snow Job XXXV: February 4, 2017
Every year is a special year in Mixed Company, and every year's winter concert is the product of months of hard work. But this year, Mixed Company performed for a few more people than usual -- by "a few", we mean over 100 alumni of the group! Our a cappella ancestors congregated in New Haven for their 5-year reunion, and we had a great time meeting them all and connecting with our musical roots. In order to accommodate the extra audience members, we performed in the beautiful and spacious Battell Chapel on Yale's Old Campus. Thank you, alums, for making this year's Snow Job one to remember!
Winter Tour: January 7-14, 2017
This winter break, Mixed Co headed down to our nation's capitol to spread our love of music (and our country, of course). Between the obligatory sightseeing and museum-visiting, we enjoyed singing at the Kreeger Museum, Sidwell Friends High School, and many other schools and nursing homes in the area. We were also privileged to perform for U.S. Representative Mia Love (R-UT), as well as in the Statuary Hall in the Capitol Building! Thanks to the Campoamor family for hosting us for an entire week!
Fall Tour: October 19-21, 2016
During Yale's three-day fall break, Mixed Co embarked on our first tour of the year to perform around New York City and Southern Connecticut. We had a lot of fun singing at nursing homes like Jewish Senior Services and The Greens at Greenwich, as well as running a cappella workshops at schools like Fairfield Ludlowe High School and The Calhoun School. Thanks to Andy and Judy Keller (and JJ the Dog) for hosting us at their lovely home in Rye, NY!
tap night: september 14, 2016
The Gump is growing! After a rigorous process of auditions and callbacks, Mixed Co tapped 6 new members: Ananya, Neha, Nancy, Matt, John, and Liam. They're all super talented and we already sound better with them around. In addition to having a perfect tap, we've continued our 11-year tradition of tapping a sophomore. We're so excited for this year!
Commencement Concert: May 21, 2016
Mixed Co's seniors graduate on Monday, and to celebrate we performed one last concert with them for their friends and family members. It is with great pride and sadness that we watch these wonderful human beings head out into the real world. (except for Dayrin. He'll be around for another year)
Seniors: thank you for your careful guidance and tireless leadership over the past few years. Your strong wills and positive energy have been an inspiration to us all, and you have impacted the group for the better in too many ways to count. We are grateful for all that you've done, but we know that your accomplishments are just beginning. So, with that we say:
Don't fear the future.

Vermont Minitour: May 12-16, 2016
After finishing up with exams and final papers, Mixed Co drove up to Woodstock, Vermont to relax and unwind--and sing. While there, we sang at Woodstock Terrace and held a performance and workshop at Woodstock Elementary School. We also volunteered at the Vermont Foodbank in Barre, VT for the Yale Day of Service, before sampling some delicious cheese and maple syrup at Sugarbush Farms. A big thank you to Wendy Spector for hosting us and organizing this wonderful experience!
Bulldog Days: April 25-27, 2016
We may have just met next year's newest members of Mixed Company! This year at Bulldog Days, we talked with prefrosh at Yale's Extracurricular Bazaar and sang our hearts out on public display during our Open Rehearsal. Thanks to all the prefrosh who chatted with us; we can't wait until rush next fall!
BERMUDA TOUR: MARCH 12-19, 2016
Mixed Co. had an incredible time touring around the island of Bermuda for the first week of our Spring Break! We were generously hosted by the St. George's Club and sang at Griffin's Restaurant, Harbourfront Restaurant, The Reefs Resort and Club, The Dinghy Club, and The Berkeley Institute. We also had plenty of time to explore the beaches and sights of Bermuda!
Snow Job XXXIV: JANUARY 30, 2016
Our Winter Jam, Snow Job 34, was a huge success! We completely sold out Sudler Recital Hall, debuted five new arrangements and songs from our 2015 album, and absolutely loved showcasing all of the hard work we put into making a great concert. Thank you all for coming and supporting Mixed Co! If you were unable to make it, check out the videos on YouTube by clicking here. We look forward to the rest of the semester, in which we will be doing some local performances as well as traveling to Bermuda for Spring Break!
JANUARY 25, 2016
Our annual jam is this Saturday, January 30th at 7 pm! Snow Job 34: A Three Four All will take place in Sudler Hall, and all are invited! Student tickets are $5 and non-students are $15.

JANUARY 23, 2016
Mixed Co braved Winter Storm Jonas to sing at freshman Jacob Miller's old high school! We led a workshop for high school students and then shared the stage with three a cappella groups from Needham High School as well as The Tufts Amalgamates, UNH's Not Too Sharp, and UMass Amherst's Wicked Pitch.
