Holiday Harmonies

BU a cappella groups perform seasonal classics

What would the holidays be without festive music? With that in mind, we asked five BU a cappella groups—the Treblemakers, the Dear Abbeys, Aural Fixation, In Achord, and Terpsichore—to sing carols and holiday songs. The performances were recorded at the Castle last year. Take a minute to listen. These songs, and these talented singers, will boost your spirits and put you in a holiday mood.

      On the same note, where is Mustard Seed, BU’s Christian a capella group? You should contact them for any future a capella highlights, especially one centered on Christmas!

      Thank you so much! We love your support. We’re not sure why we weren’t asked to sing some Chanukah classics for BU Today.
