Splash of Color 2006 will feature a cappella music and comedy as well as several guest groups from the university’s vibrant a cappella community.

“This year’s concert is a very special affair to celebrate our 15th Anniversary, and will be unlike any a cappella concert Washington University and St. Louis have ever seen,” said group coordinator Aaron Lewis. “Mosaic Whispers has always been proud of its energetic and supportive alumni community, and the Saturday show will feature around 50 of Mosaic Whispers 78 alumni returning to the stage to perform some of the greatest hits from the last 15 years.”
