Our new BOKA babies have been with us for just over a week, and we’re happy to report that they’re fitting in just like family!
We are excited to bring Gillian ’21, Ahjani ’21, Papa ’20 and Riley ’20 into the world of a cappella at Bowdoin!

Congratulations to…

Ahem, conGRADUATIONs to our seniors! We will miss you all very very much.
Also a congratulations to Amber for being selected as next year’s A Cappella Council President!
Keep your eyes peeled for video recordings and official tracks coming out soon!

Senior Concert, Recording & Reunion

Three things to address in this catch-up post:
1.) BOKA’s senior concert, where we showcase our graduating seniors through a self-chosen solo, will be held in Bowdoin’s Chapel on Saturday before Spring Gala at 7pm. Several events are happening that evening, but you will be able to make it to all of them, including the Spring Gala! Please come to help us celebrate our seniors: Kyra, Caroline and Liam.

2.) Time has come again to record (last time was Fall and Spring 2014-15)! Recording will take place over May 11 and 12, so keep your eyes out for additions to the Soundcloud.

3.) BOKA is swiftly approaching its 25th anniversary. Current BOKA members are working with Alumni Relations to set up an event where alumni can come back and celebrate the BOKA family. If you would like to connect with other BOKA alumni, please find the facebook page to keep up-to-date with the reunion planning. As of now, it will be held during Homecoming in 2020 (sometime early October).  More information is to come.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to Amber Barksdale at [email protected]!

New Basses!

On January 30, 2017, we welcomed two new members to BOKA, Chris Brown ’18 and Jackson Harrower ’20! Thank you to all those who auditioned, it was a difficult choice, and we truly appreciate you coming out to sing for us.
