Mosaic Whispers

Mosaic Whispers is the oldest co-ed a cappella group at Washington University in St. Louis and has been bringing innovative co-ed a cappella to the St. Louis area since its founding in 1991. 2008 marks the 17th Anniversary of Mosaic Whispers, and in those seventeen years since Whispers formed, 88 unique individuals have been dubbed “Whispers." Over the last few years, Whispers has gained national recognition with appearances on five national a cappella compilations, including Voices Only 2007, CAMO's (Collegiate A Cappella Music Assosciation) Top Shelf A Cappella: Volume 1 in 2005, BOCA 2002 (Best of College A Cappella), Voices Only 2005, and the CARA Awards Compilation 2002 (Contempory A Cappella Recording Association), Mosaic Whispers also has made a name at the ICCA (International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella), where the group advanced to the Regional Level last year for the third time. In October 2004, with Washington University hosting the Second Presidential Debate, Whispers was also honored to perform on two live broadcasts of MSNBCs Hardball with Chris Matthews for a national audience of millions. In addition to their live performances, Mosaic Whispers has produced seven studio albums to date, including a 10th Anniversary Album Vested Interest and the award-winning Against the Grain. Behind Bars, the group's newest album, was just released in March 2007! The group performs regularly on campus and around St. Louis throughout the year and also tours extensively. Most recently the group has traveled to Springfield, IL, Philadelphia, PA, Texas, Grand Rapids, MI, Washington, DC, Memphis, TN, Denver, CO, Madison, WI, Los Angeles, CA, Chicago, IL, and New York, NY, representing Washington University and performing for audiences of all ages. Whispers also hosts an annual concert in March, Splash of Color, bringing in guest groups from Washington University and campuses across the country as well as many of our alumni.
