Men’s Glee Club seeks lyrics to new “Michigan Song”
The University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club wants you.
Not to sing, exactly. They want you to submit lyrics for an original new “Michigan song,” which the members will premier in April 2017 to mark the University’s Bicentennial.
Lyricists are invited to submit entries online between Sept. 1-Nov. 15. The winner will be announced by Dec. 15.
A monetary prize is part of the package, but the ultimate reward will come from making a contribution to U-M’s musical legacy, says Eugene Rogers, AMusD ’08, associate director of choirs and professor of conducting at U-M’s School of Music, Theatre & Dance (SMTD).
“It gives me goose bumps to talk about it because we are marking history,” he says. “This song will live on in perpetuity.”
