about us

IMG_2361.JPG

The Stereotypes are a TTBB (all tenor and bass) a cappella group from Washington University in St. Louis.

 

Founded in 2001 as a fresh take on “stereotypical” a cappella, we sing music from genres ranging from pop and rock to soul and folk (and some originals)!

 

Our arrangements are all completely original and made by members or group alumni! We approach singing with a performance mindset, engaging our audience and communicating each song's individual message.

Best known for our annual concert, Mr. Stereotype, where we each embody our own “stereotype” and compete in our world-famous a cappella beauty pageant, all while coming together to put on an incredible vocal performance!
