Matthew's Minstrels

Matthew's Minstrels is a co-ed a cappella group from Vassar College. The group was founded in 1978 by a few courageous (and shameless) souls in order to provide the Vassar community with an entertaining musical experience. Now, however, it is not uncommon to find us travelling the continent in search of new and exciting concert opportunities. We have performed at other universities, private schools, restaurants, charity benefits, private parties, hunting and shooting clubs, airplane hangars, DMV's, DMZ's, and interstate toll booths. You get the idea...just about everywhere. The Minstrels repertoire includes a large, forever increasing variety of songs spanning from the smooth, polished doo-wop of the 50's, to many of your favorite 80's tunes, to today's chart topping hits; we sing a little soul, some memorable showtunes, and a touch of jazz for spice. It has also been rumored that our group is somewhat comedic. Well, this is true. Our relaxed comedy has been our biggest flaunting feature since our inception, and will definitely be awaiting you at our next show.
