For immediate release
Feb. 10, 2005

Students at Abilene Christian University are spending hours each week rehearsing, planning and preparing to entertain thousands of alumni, students, friends and the Abilene community at Sing Song 2005 Feb. 18-19.

This annual choreographed musical event involves nearly 2,000 students and features six hosts and hostesses. The hosts and hostesses and student groups perform a variety of songs chosen to relate to this year’s theme, “Off the Charts,” a nostalgic recap of some the greatest musical entertainers of the last half-century, said Kendall Massey, Sing Song director.

To order tickets, call 674-2648 or visit Ticket prices range from $12-18. Show times are Friday, Feb. 18 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 19 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. The 8 p.m. show on Saturday is already nearly sold out. All performances will be in Moody Coliseum on the ACU campus.

Now in its 49th year, Sing Song began in 1957 as a contest between quartets who stood on stage and sang and has evolved into a competition of choreographed, costumed crowd-pleasers. Today, 10-15 student groups, clubs and classes compete in Sing Song every year and hosts and hostesses entertain the audience with musical numbers between each competitive act.

Hosts and hostesses for this year are Darren Curry, senior marketing major from Sugar Land; Nathan Lollar, junior Bible major from Tucson, Ariz.; Ben Jeffrey, junior theatre major from Kansas City, Mo.; Lara Seibert, junior theatre major from Grapevine; Holly Whited, junior vocal performance major from Dallas; and Kelci Young, junior integrated marketing and communication major from Springhill, Tenn. vFor more information about Sing Song, visit
