Fraternity and sorority students at Youngstown State University will demonstrate their singing and dancing talents at Greek Sing, an annual musical variety show set for 6 p.m. Saturday, April 11, in Stambaugh Auditorium on Fifth Avenue just north of campus. The event is open to the public, and admission is free.
Nine group performances and six open class performances will be featured in this year’s Greek Sing, the 63rd annual competition, which traditionally culminates a year of Greek activities at YSU. This year’s theme is “Word Play.” Each fraternity and sorority picks a word in the title of a song, and their selections must include that specific word.
The event, which began in 1952, will also feature last year’s defending champs. Sigma Chi, last year’s winning fraternity, will perform a medley of selections including “Piano Man,” “It’s Raining Men,” and “Sharp Dressed Man”; last year’s sorority champions, Alpha Xi Delta, will perform a medley including “One Night Only,” “A Hard Day’s Night,” and “Marry the Night.”
Other chapters participating this year include: fraternities Alpha Phi Delta, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Tau Gamma and Tau Kappa Epsilon; and sororities Alpha Omicron Pi, Delta Zeta and Zeta Tau Alpha.
The event is sponsored by YSU Greek Life, PepsiCo and YSU Student Government. For more information, contact Carrie Anderson, 330-941-3575.
