SAVE THE DATE:  Sing College Songs at Homecoming

On Saturday, October 25th, as they do every year, hundreds of alumni and their families and guests assemble at Baker Field for the Alumni Homecoming Picnic and of course the Homecoming Football Game.  The event takes place in a posh 60’x180’ tent with an artificial turf floor, and the full bar and excellent catering is provided by Columbia’s foremost caterer, Sterling Events.  Around the inside perimeter are tables promoting various alumni groups, including Columbia Alumni Singers.  At our table, we give out flyers, fill out membership applications, and sell our CDs. 


We have been invited to sing a set of Columbia Songs (similar to the set we sang at the Reunion Concerts) at about Noon on October 25th .  We will have a platform, a keyboard, a good microphone and a set of speakers, and we will have Jerry Weale and/or Bruce Trinkley – or perhaps both – to lead us.  They will also lead a rehearsal on a weekday evening a week or two before the event. 

This is a unique opportunity to get together and catch up, to sing some wonderful material, to get ourselves known to a large group of alumni, and of course, to support Columbia.  All of the logistics are being worked out with CAA by our Events Committee and our next Newsletter will explain all of the details, including how to download the music.

    I appreciate the insight and advice you’ve given me. This is a one-of-a-kind chance to reconnect with old friends, share in the joy of music, make new connections among fellow Columbia grads, and, of course, show our support for the university. https://food-le.com
