By the Light of the Moon        February 2014
 
As the Wisconsin Singers near the middle of semester we are working diligently to make this our best season ever. Just last weekend we shared the stage for the fourth year with our friends from Janesville Parker's Adaptive Music Program, students with special needs who perform a set of songs with the Singers. As always, they stole the show! In coming weeks, we have even more to look forward to, including helping to raise money for homeless families in Monroe, WI and for the Beja Shriners (Green Bay, WI).

 

These are the type of shows that reflect one of the core goals of the Wisconsin Singers: to provide a service to the statewide community through professional family-friendly performance. We look forward to seeing you at a show soon!

 

On Wisconsin!

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT:
Jerry Phillips
"We had some choreographed movement, the guys wore sport coats, and the ladies had short skirts and high heels. We were grabbed up quickly as a vehicle to
sell the University." These are the words of original 1967 Singer Jerry Phillips. Jerry
spent two years with the Singers from 1967-9, and performed nearly 60 shows - leading to the joke... wondering about how anybody graduated. Phillips recalls the Singers being a 1 credit class, the first pop group on campus that received credit. At the time Jerry was also a member of the Men's Glee Club-originally the most popular performer for the Alumni Association-until the Singers came along and became "the favorite child of Arlie," a name we all know quite well.

CURRENT EVENT
The University of Wisconsin has a long tradition of sending current and former athletes to compete in the Olympics and this year's games in Sochi will be no different. With at least one representative in each of the last 10 Winter Games, the Wisconsin men's hockey team will have four former players competing for Team USA to make it 11 straight Olympics with at least one Badger skater. On the women's side, after 11 current and former Badgers played at the 2010 Vancouver Games, five former stars will take to the ice in Sochi, four for Team USA and one for Team Canada. Finally, the last athlete representing Wisconsin is a former golfer whose first Olympic competition was before she even reached her college playing days.
