All Campus Events (ACE) began the spring semester with the eightieth annual All-Sing competition. The Baptist Collegiate Ministry took home first place with their theme “O Brother Where Art Thou.”
This year, teams competed with themes that varied from ’80s to “Pocahontas.” Organizations performed songs from “Mama Mia,” “Grease,” “Wicked,” and hits from the Blues Brothers.
The competition included thirteen teams that were a combination of twenty different student organizations. Audiences also saw special performances from VOLume and reVOLution, both a cappella ensembles in the UT choral program.
Judges were picked from all over campus and throughout the Knoxville area. Based on criteria from categories such as sound, interpretation and music, teams were awarded for divisional and overall performance. The best female and male soloists were also awarded.
BCM’s first-place, costumed performance included tracks such as “Down to the River to Pray” and “In the Highways.”
Phi Mu Alpha and Alpha Delta Pi placed second overall with their mix of songs from “The Wizard of Oz” and “The Wiz.” Third place overall went to Delta Delta Delta and Chi Omega with their performance of hits from “Mama Mia.”
Alpha Gamma Rho and Sigma Alpha placed first in the small mixed division. Zeta Tau Alpha and Kappa Sigma placed third in the large mixed division,
Phi Mu and Alpha Chi Omega took second for large single division, and Delta Zeta and Sigma Kappa placed third.
