Hello, and welcome to our page!! Miscellania is the only all-female group at Bowdoin, and we are so excited to share a little bit about who we are and what we do :)

Bowdoin's original all-women's a cappella group arranges music ranging from classical to pop and performs at various events both on and off campus. We create community both within and outside our group, adding to the rich musical opportunities at Bowdoin College!

In addition to this website, feel free to follow us on Instagram! @bowdoinmiscellania

Why Aren't We Recruiting This Year?

Deciding whether or not to recruit this fall was a tough call, and one we made with a lot of love in our hearts. Being in Missy is an experience beyond just rehearsing music, and we didn’t feel like we’d be able to offer that experience in an authentic way if we weren’t able to welcome and spend time with new members in person. Instead, by choosing not to recruit, we hope to engage with a broader range of first years, offering a variety of events and workshops where anyone can drop in to learn a new skill, meet our members, and see what it’s like to be part of the a cappella community on campus!

Sing That Thing!

Below you can find two links to episodes of the national acapella competition, "Sing That Thing!" in which Missy performed!!

Meet the Group!

So that you could all get a better sense of who we are, and what we look like, we decided to write brief bios for ourselves!
