All-School Sing! will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18 and from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19 in Behrens Auditorium.
Jared Glover, senior psychology major and Lauren Haire, senior music education major, are the hosts and the co-chairs for the show. Phi Mu Alpha and Sigma Alpha Iota have put together something for interlude while the other groups are preparing to perform. They work together to manage all the different groups.
“[To perform],we have HSUCru, Freshmen, the International Students, AIO and Kappa, Sabers and Spark, Delta, Ricky will be soloing, APO, Spurs, Sigma Alpha Theta and Spurs. The Cowboy Band will be performing on Friday night and UpBeat will be performing on Saturday night.” Haire said.
Awards will be given out on Saturday. The award categories consist of sweepstakes, runner up, best choreography, best solo and most creative. The awards will be given out based on the points from the panel of judges.
“I have been able to watch a couple of the shows in full and they have really, really good ideas and vocals altogether,” Haire said.
Glover shared about the amount of work put into this production by the performers. “It varies from group to group, but I think from the beginning of school they have been rehearsing,” Glover said.
“It has been something that has been at least hosted by Find Me Alpha and SAI since the 60’s. It’s something that has always been a part of Homecoming. Alumni always look forward to it. Our groups always look forward to it too because it’s a good way to showcase themselves and also get recruitments too. It’s just a fun thing to do to just get to know people from other different sororities and fraternities that you wouldn’t meet outside of the band hall or science building,” Haire said.
Glover mentioned the personal growth that he believes is involved in this production. “As stressful as it can be, it’s an excellent way for people to get involved and improve; I certainly say by the end of this task, I will be able to say I am a lot better at my managing skills than I was before this. And I think the performers can say that they become better performers by doing this,” Glover said. “All parties in some way benefit in participating in some way.”
