As of the last decade or so, the Men’s Glee Club has been very engaged on our great football Saturdays in bringing the joy of Michigan songs to our athletic patrons. While our community certainly is appreciative of our enthusiastic cheer, we as a group felt that it would be beneficial to branch out.
These Football sings (termed “Record Sings”) served as an important semester-based requirement that our members had to fulfill in order to go on tour in the Spring. They expose our members and our repertoire to the community at large. Each clubber had to perform at least one of these sings to be considered for the tour list.
Noting the Glee Club’s other initiatives in more distant communities, we determined that our community engagement requirement for our clubbers should be extended to include singing for our other initiatives. While Record Sings still maintain an active part of our activities, they are no longer required to go on tour; clubbers can now elect to sing at another event that our Executive Board deems as a “community engagement” sing (Such as our Brothers in Song initiatives in Detroit and Chicago). We made this possible through an amendment to our constitution earlier this semester.
