University SING comes back to WT after three year absence

Since 1992, WTAMU has held singing and dancing competitions until they were halted three years ago.

Sponsored by CORE, SING will return on April 25 for a $1 admission fee and the judged performance will be April 26 for $3 at 8 p.m. in the Mary Moody Northen Hall.

“University SING is the name of the competition,” CORE consultant Nicole Moore said. “It hasn’t been done in the last three years so the CORE office decided to bring it back.”The organizations participating this year are Tau Beta Sigma, Kappa Kappa Psi, Chi Omega, Alpha Tau Omega, Delta Zeta and Phi Delta Theta.

“SING is going to be awesome,” Nicole Moore said. “The night will be so much fun and it’s a past-time of WT so I encourage every student, faculty and staff to come.”

CORE consultant Brianna Moore said each organization chooses its own music genre and creates its own playlist.

“[The organizations] choose their own genre they want because it is free-for-all this year,” she said. “They have a deadline to turn in to us to listen and approve.”

The competition is between their peers and friends, Brianna Moore said.

“It will be cool to see what they have been working on,” she said. “And since the theme is open, they can do anything.”

Brianna Moore said organizations can use costumes if they wish and that it can definitely aid their chances of winning.

Tickets can be purchased ahead of time at the JBK information desk and the night of the event at the door. Any questions call the CORE office at 651-2313 or Nicole Moore at 806-216-0395.
