InChant was established in 2005 as an all-male ensemble named Mixed Nuts at The Ohio State University. The group now claims the moniker first established contemporary a cappella group at Ohio State. After several years the group added female voices and changed its name to InChant. As people graduated, moved, and transferred, InChant has added new members, yet maintained their reputation as an elite singing group at The Ohio State University, solidifying their status in the collegiate a cappella music genre. The current ensemble has been singing together for almost a year. The most tenured in the group of 4 years to those who are close to reaching their year mark. With a combined experience of 27 years in the a cappella world, InChant enjoys taking contemporary songs and putting our own spin on them to give the crowd a familiar new song.
