Throwback Thursday - 1964 Step Sing Rehearsal

Students returned to campus for the 2018 Spring Term on Monday, and one of the first items on the agenda for many was to start practicing for Step Sing (it's a good thing too, as this year it will be held not too long from now -- February 8th-10th).  So with that in mind, this week's "Throwback Thursday" shows some of their predecessors rehearsing for the event in 1964.  For some reason the "Woody's Roundup" song from Toy Story 2 is playing through my head.

While Step Sing is a huge production nowadays, it has humble roots at Samford's East Lake campus (where it was known then as Howard College) where it started as a sing-along held on the steps of Renfroe Hall in 1951.

If you're interested in attending this year's Step Sing, tickets go on sale online tomorrow starting at 9:00 a.m. Central Time.
