Greek Sing 2016 Impresses Yet Again

Greek Sing 2016, “My Big Fat Greek Sing” corralled hundreds of students in Eisenhower Auditorium last weekend to watch Greek organizations perform songs from various movies and musicals. Sigma Kappa, Pi Lambda Phi, and Phi Sigma Kappa won best costumes (read: togas) and best overall performance of the night for their rendition of Hercules as the evening’s finale.

Greek Sing kicked off with a performance of Chicago excerpts by Sigma Delta Tau and Delta Upsilon marked by a performance of “We Both Reached for the Gun” and reenactment of the “puppet-working” dance style from the original production.


Classic Disney movies were popular theme of the night, with groups performing numbers from Cinderella, Mulan, Tarzan, Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, and Snow White. Cinderella highlighted the first soloist of the night gave the original story a college-style twist about a girl with horrible roommates looking for Prince Charming to take her to Frat Formal Friday.

“Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas was a particularly spectacular performance, though the show only finished third overall in the competition. The soloist in Tarzan sounded similar to the original Phil Collins version, while the girl playing Jane put on a convincing British accent that combined with an exhibition of comedy and acrobatics to cap off a solid performance.


Another group performed Greek Rock a parody of Disney Channel Original Movie Camp Rock. You know, the one you loved in middle school with Demi Lovato and The Jonas Brothers. The duet “This is Me” was easily the highlight of the performance, as soloists carried the tune even when the accompaniment cut out due to technical difficulties.

Broadway musicals like Moulin Rouge, Jersey Boys, West Side Story, Annie, and Rent rounded out the night with impressive solo performances — the actress who portrayed Annie won best female lead.


Willy Wonka featured an electronica version of the Oompa Loompa Song with one of the best dance numbers of the show, while ABBA’s Mamma Mia! performers executed the second kick line of the night before best overall performance Hercules took the stage. One Hercules dancer performed a standing back flip to end the event with a bang.
