MURRAY, Ky. — Each year on Murray State University’s campus, one of the biggest and most anticipated University events takes place, uniting students, faculty, alumni, staff and community members. Sigma Alpha Iota’s All Campus Sing will be held on Wednesday, April 12 as the pre-show will begin at 3 p.m. followed by the event at 3:30 p.m. All Campus Sing is a Murray State tradition and has taken place each April since 1958.
Participants typically consist of student groups including fraternities and sororities, residential colleges and a number of other student organizations and clubs who choreograph and perform a brief musical number on the steps of Lovett Auditorium. The groups come together to raise funds and awareness for the philanthropy with which Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI) associates itself: the People to People Project.
The People to People Project takes resources, music, instruments, teachers and performers to developing countries. The goal of this project is to spread music education by starting programs and schools which teach music.
“All Campus Sing is a very unique event. In addition to providing significant donations to People-to-People projects, which impacts music programs in over 60 countries, the event also promotes music in the community through an instrument drive and the live event,” said Allison Adams, SAI All Campus Sing Chair. “The instrument drive allows SAI to collect used instruments from Murray State students and donate the instruments to local schools. The event itself allows community members and Murray State students, faculty, and staff to come together and enjoy musical shows selected by various groups of individuals.”
For those who cannot attend this year’s event, a live stream of All Campus Sing will be available that afternoon at murraystate.edu/streaming.
The event is partially sponsored by the Murray State Alumni Association and the Office of Student Affairs.
