The Society of Orpheus and Bacchus

On All-Hallows’ Eve in 1938, twelve of the sweetest voices at Yale University converged at Mory’s Temple Bar to form an a cappella group unlike any other. This group went without a name until they capitalized on a backhanded compliment they heard at a party: “These SOBs are good!” And thus the Society of Orpheus and Bacchus was born. Armed with the mellifluous talents of Orpheus, the soulful minstrel of Olympus, and the care-free revelry of Bacchus, god of merry-making, our society has seamlessly fused our ancient traditions of musicianship and festivity with a professional flair for 75 years.

As America’s second longest-running collegiate a cappella group, we have an enormous and complex repertoire that spans more than seven decades. Our songbook includes jazz standards, folk tunes, barbershop quartets, spirituals, blues, pop, rock and roll, traditional Yale songs, and original compositions. We also pride ourselves on injecting a healthy dose of comedy into our performances to make each concert engaging, unique, and lighthearted.

We have showcased our distinctive style of showmanship all around the nation and the globe in numerous schools, country clubs, and churches, with exciting venues ranging from the White House to the Miami Heat’s American Airlines Arena, to the Hong Kong Jockey Club, and the sugar sand shores of Aruba.
