Fall 2016 Auditions

The Mixolydians are pleased to announce our auditions for Fall 2016. We are in particular looking for traditionally male voices (tenor or bass), but we will gladly accept any and all auditionees!

We are holding auditions on Tuesday, September 6, from 7-9 PM in the Music Studios basement practice rooms (be on the lookout for signs), and again on Friday, September 9, from 4-6 PM in Boger Hall (AKA 41 Wyllys) Room 114. Keep an eye out for our Facebook event (which can be found: https://www.facebook.com/events/1394132290600862/) and a forthcoming Wesleying post. We hope to see you there!

Belated welcome to new members

The Mixes are thrilled to belatedly welcome Andrea Weires '19 and Anna Apostolidis '19! We are so glad to have them in the group and their contributions have already been substantial. Anna and Andrea joined us last spring as freshman, and we look forward to seeing what they do over their next three years at Wesleyan!

Reunion and Commencement Reunion!

We had a fabulous time hosting a Mixolydians reunion last year during Reunion and Commencement week here on campus, so we thought we'd do the same thing again! Any alumni who is going to be here should totally come by to sing with us, meet new people, greet old friends, and listen to a few songs sung by the current Mixolydians. We will be meeting on Saturday, May 22 at 2PM, location TBD. Look out for an event on Facebook! Hope to see you all there!

Spring Concert!

The Mixes will be having our spring concert on Saturday May 7th at 1pm in Memorial Chapel. We're excited to have our first full concert with our new frosh, Anna Apostolidis, and Andrea Weires. There will be many songs about sex in different languages, as per usual. If you're unable to make this concert but really want to hear us sing, be on the lookout for an alumni reunion and mini-concert during R&C weekend!
