Accepted Students Weekend

Two days into Accepted Students weekend and we’ve performed four times already! On Thursday we sang at Helmrich House, then the Chapel. Yesterday we sang at MacMillan House and again at Relay For Life! It’s been a pretty hectic start to the weekend, but it’s still going! Our next performance will be next week with Miscellania!

Congratulations to the Class of 2020 on being accepted, we hope you enjoy your time here!

Canadian Tuxedos

A huge thank you to everyone who came to our first MeddieBOKsters concert last night! The Meddies were amazing as always, debuting a senior solo (Feelin’ Good, opb Nina Simone), arranged by a member of BOKA!

We busted out our best denim-on-denim and debuted a new senior solo (Rehab, opb Amy Winehouse, soloist Zac Watson ’16) and a new song (Pillowtalk, opb Zayn Malik, soloists: Isabel Udell ’19 and Amber Barksdale ’18).

Our next concert will be next weekend for Admitted Students weekend!

Upcoming Concerts

BOKA is teaming up with the Meddiebempsters for a concert next Thursday, April 7!
We will be debuting another senior solo, and possibly another surprise song.

We will also be singing with Miscellania in a few weeks, some keep your eyes out for a facebook event.

Last night’s concert went great! There was a great turnout and the Manic Optimists were amazing!
Thanks everyone for coming to support us and Ursus and for giving a group from Bates a chance 🙂

Thanks to Isaac for coordinating with his brother to help bring ManOps to Bowdoin!
Videos from the concert will be up soon.
That’s all for now until after Spring Break, see you in a few weeks!


A little late to report – but the recordings BOKA made throughout last year at The Studio (Portland, ME) have finally arrived and live in a folder in Dropbox. If you would like to hear these recordings, email one or both of our fearless leaders:
Zac Watson ’16 – Business Manager
Hallie Schaeffer ’16 – Musical Director

Kicking off Spring 2016!

Welcome back, everyone! It was quite an adjustment back from break, but we’re muddling through. We are ridiculously excited to welcome back all our juniors from their semester abroad (Kyra, Jono, Caroline, Savannah and Liam)!
We’re starting the semester off right away learning all the senior solos – first rehearsal is tomorrow!
Check out our list of senior solos on our Repertoire page!
