Our 153rd year is underway here in Ann Arbor, and we're busy preparing for this year’s fall Hill concert. Like every semester, we started with auditions and now boast 36 fantastic new members. They're hitting the ground running, and like the rest of us, they couldn't be more excited for what the year holds.
A few of the highlights this year include our Brothers in Song program and our spring tour. This fall we are partnering with the Detroit School of Arts as a part of our Brothers in Song program, and for the first time our partner school will be joining us in concert twice - once at Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit and once here on campus at Hill Auditorium. Additionally, this winter we'll be taking the Brothers in Song program to DC where we'll be working with Duke Ellington School for the Arts. That program will culminate with a concert in DC as a part of our spring tour. That tour will also include visits to South Boston, VA, which is Dr. Rogers' hometown; Hilton Head, South Carolina; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; New York City, where we'll be performing in Alice Tully Hall; and a final joint concert in Boston with both the Harvard and Yale Glee Clubs.
As you can see, we have an exciting year ahead and we hope that you can make it out to one of our concerts!
Until then, Go Blue!
