In the spring of 1993, the University of Maryland was hit with the Faux Paz, the first, and still most electric, co-ed a cappella group on campus. Since then, the Faux Paz have wowed thousands of people with the ability to produce intricate a cappella arrangements from a variety of genres. Faux Paz’s mission is not only to create a unique musical experience, but to bring their songs to life with emotion, energy, and passion . Once you get a taste of this group, you will be hooked and keep coming back for more spectacular music.

Our newest and self-titled album, Faux Paz, was released on iTunes & Loudr! You can also hear us on Spotify. Download or stream it and let us know what you think! For more information on our other releases, click on the Albums tab. Our last album, Chaos, is also available on Loudr, iTunes & Spotify.

We're available to sing at events and concerts, both on campus and off. For info, please e-mail us.

  • We are incredibly proud to announce that Faux Paz placed 3rd in the ICCA Finals in NYC! We are also thrilled to announced that our beautiful and talented soloist, Lynique was recognized as the top female soloist of the night! We can now say that we're the 3rd best collegiate a cappella group, and the top mixed group in the world! We're feel so fortunate to have our second consecutive year at finals end so successfully.
