The DQ of Amherst College

Our Music

The DQ is a co-ed a cappella group based at Amherst College in Amherst, MA. Sixteen singers strong, our shows often feature not only singing but choreography, skits, open bars, and the occasional improv comedy competition. We arrange and perform our own music and our repertoire is diverse, ranging from recent pop hits to old jazz standards, from Disney tunes to old DQ traditional songs dating back decades. We’re proud to be a part of the music scene at “the Singing College” and beyond.

The repertoire listed below is just a sample of what we’ve been up to in recent years, and is typical of what you can expect at our upcoming shows.
