About the Society of Orpheus and Bacchus: On All Hallows’ Eve in 1938, twelve of the sweetest voices at Yale converged on Mory’s Temple Bar to form an a cappella group unlike any other. This group went without a name until they capitalized on a backhanded compliment received at a party— heard above the tinkle of ice was “These SOBs are good!” These groundbreaking singers invoked the talents of Orpheus, minstrel to Olympus, and the legacy of Bacchus, god of revelry, knowing quite well that good music and good spirits are essential to the success of any party.
The Society of Orpheus and Bacchus is the second-longest-running collegiate a cappella group in the nation. They have an enormous repertoire spanning more than seven decades that includes traditional, jazz, blues, rock and roll, and original compositions. They also inject a healthy dose of comedy into performances to make each concert engaging and unique. They have brought their unique blend of showmanship all around the nation and the globe: from the White House to the shores of Aruba to Cityplaza in Hong Kong.
