The Callbacks

Conceived in the fall of 1986 by Harvard undergraduates Craig Hickman and Morgan Inniss, the Callbacks originated as a mixed a cappella group aiming to diversify the spectrum of artistic performance at the college. In its earliest days, the group's participation in the campus music scene was restricted to opening for other performers. Soon, however, the group developed a musical presence of its own, performing at paying venues, at other colleges, at charity concerts, and eventually on the stage of Sanders Theatre. A recording career followed shortly afterwards. As years have gone by, the Callbacks have become more and more established in the a cappella community. The group continues to garner national awards for its live performances; its arrangements (all written by Callbacks); as well as its six studio recordings, of which ...and three wishes, released 2005, is the latest. Annual trips have been initiated, including a Spring Break tour and a fall New York tour. For the individual members , the evolution has manifested itself in even more responsibility and participation. The ongoing struggle to refine our performance and remain at the top of the art has transformed this amazingly diverse collage of faces into a legitimate family. Being in the Callbacks shapes a significant portion of each of our college experiences. We each try our best to translate the passion and the humor that this group provides us into a passionate, humorous show for every audience and for each other.
