Who are we? We’re the Chorallaries – MIT’s first coed a cappella group. We make all our music with our voices, from huge solos all the way down to sick drum beats. Who makes them? How about sixteen of the best, most talented singers MIT has to offer! Started over January term in the ’76-’77 school year, we’re comprised of an eclectic group of students coming together from all walks of life to contribute to some serious music-making.
While we enjoy being wildly popular on campus at MIT, we have also gained national recognition through participation in a cappella competitions, production of award-winning CD’s, and travel throughout the country. We also happen to be responsible for the infamous Concert in Bad Taste, a yearly night of music and theater where political correctness gets thrown out the window.
All of our repertoire is arranged by group members, so every arrangement you hear from us is 100 percent original! In addition to performing for packed audiences on campus at MIT, we take these songs with us when we hit the road and skies on tour and in competition around the United States and beyond! Read more!
Listed here are the most recent albums!
The latest release from the Chorallaries of MIT! The record includes “Hot Air Balloon”, arranged by Drew Haven ’12, which was featured on the Best of College A Cappella (BOCA) 2011 and Voices Only 2010.
Positive Chorallation (2007)
Mixed by a cappella master Bill Hare, this CD features a sound never before heard on our previous albums. From the hard and edgy Papercut (a runner-up for a Collegiate A Cappella Recording Association Award), to the beautiful blending of Rainbow Connection, this album packs a punch. Get a copy today while supplies last! Staring Down the Infinite (2004) Well, we headed back into the studio during IAP 2004 (aka January for those not in on MIT-speak), and, after four months of hard work recording and mixing, Staring Down the Infinite was ready!
