Founded in 1984, the Amalgamates are Tufts University’s oldest mixed-gender a cappella group. The ‘Mates have a tradition of musical excellence represented by both the current singers and a network of over 150 alumni worldwide. The 'Mates have performed in a variety of locales from Baseball Stadiums to Barcelona, Spain. We've performed at schools, fundraisers, conducted workshops, and busked on street corners around the world. 

Our critically acclaimed albums have won Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards (CARAs) ranging from Best Song to Best Soloist to Best Mixed Collegiate Album from the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America (CASA). We have also had a number of songs featured on Best of College A Cappella's (BOCA) annual compilation albums. 

The 'Mates are, and have always been, a group of close friends who share a passion for making great music.
