Boston University Dear AbbeysShare
While not participants in The Sing Off, The Dear Abbeys - Boston University’s premier all-male a cappella group - are pleased to host the Mass General Cancer Center Fundraiser on their home turf. Since their founding in 1992, the singers have gained a reputation in the Boston area for their energetic style of live performance, which blends musical precision with a lighthearted stage presence that can get downright goofy.
In addition to regular appearances at BU and throughout Boston, the Abbeys have traveled far and wide, singing in stadiums, on street corners, and everywhere in between. They have performed in Illinois to benefit Tourette’s syndrome research, sung our national anthem at Boston Bruins and Red Sox games, and toured the Hawaiian Islands. In 2005, they won the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) in New York City. Since then, the Abbeys have hit the road once a year to bring …the joy of a cappella to K-12 choir programs in such exotic locales as Fairbanks, Alaska, the San Francisco Bay Area, Austin, Texas, northern New Mexico, the Florida Keys and New Orleans.
