Greek Sing 2013 Goes Off As A Success

The annual Greek Sing went down last night at Eisenhower Auditorium, with members of Penn State’s Greek community putting on a Broadway style showcase.

Although Greek Sing was created in 1968 as an opportunity for fraternities and sororities to show off their musical talents, it has since transitioned into an event that directly benefits students. All profits from Greek Sing benefit the Gayle Beyers Scholarship Fund. Each year, a panel of Penn State faculty and staff award scholarships to individuals who display the same dedication, bravery, and commitment as Beyers, a former Greek Advisor nationally-known for her expertise in fraternities and sororities.

Last night’s lineup included musical numbers from many famous Disney movies and broadway classics ranging from Beauty and the Beast to Cats. While not every performance was Broadway quality, every group looked enthusiastic and had fun with the show.

“Beauty and the Beast” set the bar for the night with an overall spectacular performance. From props to choreographing, this act was about as good as it gets (the lead actress even looked just like Belle). The number had the entire audience singing and dancing along in their seats. Other well known acts like Annie and Legally Blonde stole the show as well thanks to their own talented lead vocalists. “Tomorrow” sung by the lovable red-headed Annie sounded like it came straight out of the movie. Annie did more than just steal the show, winning first place in the long act category.

The 18-act lineup lasted about two and a half hours, and included an awards ceremony and raffle after the performances concluded. “I was so proud of the show the kids put on tonight, it was really special,” said Penn State Greek life director Roy Baker.

The performers had a blast during the show as well. “All of the performances were great and it was fun to see my friends in other Fraternities and Sororities performing on stage,” commented Fiji’s Danny Murphy.

Overall, it was a memorable night, all dedicated to the memory of Conor MacMannis, the Penn State student who tragically fell nine stories to his death at Penn Tower last month.
