JUXTAPOSITION is an entirely student-run organization whose goal is to create, record, and perform harmonious vocal symphonies, instilling a state of euphoric bliss in our audiences. We pride ourselves on technical, complex, and unique arrangements, focused on maintaining superior live performances, while still producing professional recorded albums.

ESTABLISHED in 1994 by student Mark Cirnigliaro, the name "Juxtaposition" was adopted. It means, "setting side by side," which coincidentally describes the nature of our performances. Juxtaposition has performed many concerts each year on Virginia Tech's campus and has traveled across the globe to share its talents.

OUR REPERTOIRE includes almost anything that can be arranged for a cappella male voices, including classics, 70's, 80's, rock, pop, hip-hop, and more. Everything from serious performances, to comedy skits, to original tracks can be heard at a Juxtaposition performance.

OUR AWARDS AND HONORS are humbling and greatly appreciated. We have been fortunate enough to be recognized with nominations for our recorded albums for the Contemporary A Cappella Record Awards (CARAs), been included on the Best of College A Cappella (BOCA) compilations twice, advanced to the International Championship of Collegiate Finals in 2004, and been invited to perform at many prestigious events, including the White House.

OUR ANNUAL PERFORMANCES occur once each semester and are typically held at The Lyric Theatre in Blacksburg, VA. We traditionally sing two sold out performances on a Friday evening at 7:00pm and 9:30pm.
