The Compulsive Lyres is a co-ed, self-directed a cappella group from the University of Michigan. In 2002, the Lyres became the first group from Michigan to win the largest collegiate a cappella championship in the country – the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella – and they remain the only group from Michigan to hold this honor.The Lyres have also made other appearances on the national level, performing on live television with “The Today Show”, and they were featured on the 2002 “Best of Collegiate A Cappella” CD.
The Lyres’ success as an a cappella group, however, did not end in 2002 – the exciting and unique opportunities offered by membership in the Lyres have continued to this day. They have performed in front of thousands at the New Student Convocation in Crisler Arena, and in May of 2015, they were asked to perform live on National Public Radio with Tom Ashbrook to talk about college a cappella and Pitch Perfect 2 (you can check it out here!).
Whether you are a singer looking for the right a cappella group, a friend/family member of a Lyre, or simply a fan, the Lyres are glad you are here, and we hope you will enjoy this site as, ultimately, we made it for you. Thank you or visiting, and happy browsing!
