The Step Sing Sweepstakes Trophy will be presented after the Saturday evening show.
Before Friday night’s show, the Office of Alumni Programs will host a reception, 5:30–7 p.m., in Jane H. Brock Recital Hall adjacent to Wright Center. Alumni can enjoy light appetizers, photos with the sweepstakes trophy, Step Sing memorabilia—including favorite costumes from years past—and the filming of the live stream countdown show.
Those who cannot attend the performances will be able to live stream the Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening performances. A live stream countdown show will start at 6:30 p.m. for the Friday and Saturday evening performances.
Step Sing is a 67-year tradition that started as a sing-along on the steps of Renfroe Hall at Howard College’s East Lake Campus in 1951. Today, students continue to gain an educational experience through arranging music, designing costumes and choreographing each unique Step Sing performance, according to Paige Acker, director of student activities and events.
