What to Expect
We perform a cappella songs from both Western pop music and East-Asian pop music. Our original arrangements are bound to please! We can open your act, provide background music, or be the center of attention. A typical night should be 2-5 songs long depending on your event. Invite us to your casual or formal event!
We’re Syncopasian–MIT’s East Asian a cappella group! Founded in spring 2008, Syncopasian comprises a group of fifteen or so students (both undergraduate and graduate) from all walks of life who share a love of singing a cappella. We promote the awareness of Asian pop culture at MIT and the surrounding community through performances of Asian a cappella music. Unlike that of other a cappella groups on campus, our repertoire includes songs in not only English, but also Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, and other languages that are East Asian in origin. All of our repertoire is arranged by group members and alumni, so every arrangement you hear us perform is completely original!
In addition to our concerts at the end of each semester, we perform at a wide variety of events both on and off the MIT campus.
