Ah, February. A time of love, cold weather and (of course) … SING SONG!
For those of you not quite familiar, Sing Song is a long-held and cherished tradition at Abilene Christian University. It is a choreographed acapella competition held every year in which various social clubs and class acts compete to be deemed the winner. Students write, rehearse and perfect the acts themselves and alumni come from all over the world to watch the hard work and dedication put in to creating such an amazing show.
There’s a sense of community and nostalgia in both watching and performing in the show. And for those in the show, after five weeks of intense rehearsals and little to no sleep, winning Sing Song is one of the biggest honors one can achieve during their time at ACU.
For a night of thrilling entertainment, hilarious songs and fabulous costumes, stop by Moody Coliseum on the weekend of February 15-16th for a show fit for all ages.
