Sing Song: A Campus-wide A Capella Production
On Thursday, Feb. 14, 1957, in Sewell Auditorium, Dr. Robert D. Hunter directed ACU’s first Sing Song. In a Chapel announcement, it was described as “the giant Sing Song contest which will be free and open to the public and is designed to encourage club participation and to demonstrate that we are truly ‘the Singing College.’ “
For years, students stood on risers in choral style and sang songs as they were originally written. Then they started wearing simple costumes, moving with the music, and, eventually, changing the words to songs to fit the times.
Now, of course, Sing Song is a major production featuring every club and class and several hosts and hostesses. It sells out nearly every year, with Saturday night finale tickets as hard to find as parking places within a block or two of Moody Coliseum.
