The countdown is on to Step Sing 2019! Step Sing performances will be held this year on February 7-9, 2019. Tickets will be available at tickets.samford.edu in late January. Follow us on Twitter for updates!
Step Sing began as a sing-along on the steps of Renfroe Hall at the Howard College East Lake Campus in 1951. It was held once a semester and soon became a competition. In 1957, Howard College moved to its present location on Lakeshore Drive, bringing with it the tradition of Step Sing. In 1976, Step Sing moved to its current home in Wright Center Concert Hall.
Under the direction of the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management and the Office of Student Activities and Events, Step Sing is organized by students, including musical arrangement, choreography and costume design. Step Sing has become an educational activity in which students participate through leadership development, organizational administration, and time management. Students perform three days to sold-out audiences. It continues to be one of Samford's most popular traditions, and is a popular event not only among students, but also prospective students, employees, alumni, and the Birmingham community.
Each year, Step Sing partners with a non-profit organization to raise funds for a great cause. We will be announcing the Step Sing 2019 Philanthropy soon, and there will be lots of opportunities to get involved. Stay tuned on Twitter at the link above for updates!
