An exciting tradition continues Sunday as LSU’s fraternities and sororities pair up to perform in the Greek Board of Director’s 93rd Songfest competition on April 27.
Thirty Greek chapters have been randomly paired to create eleven coed performance groups.
“Each group has worked extremely hard and put in lots of effort, so I am excited to see all of their hard work come full circle,” Songfest Director, Caroline Broussard expressed. “I love seeing the whole Greek community come together to perform and support their friends!”
Originally a men’s singing competition, Songfest has developed into a choreographed dance competition among LSU’s Greek community, as well as GBOD’s primary fundraising event.
Each performance group chooses their own theme and creates a five and a half minute dance routine that is sure to entertain an eager audience.
Routines will be judged based on their overall appearance, choreography, complexity, and creativity.
There will be three bonus opportunities for added points to a group’s score based on their ticket sales, t-shirt sales, and the banner competition.
The judges will also give recognition awards to the best male performance, best costume and crowd appeal.
Broussard was excited to announce that this year’s judges would include Ms. Joni Canazaro, Ms. Shannon Nunez, Ms. Sandra Parks and Dr. Kerry Sauley.
The event will be held at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center at 3 p.m., with doors opening at 2 p.m. Presale tickets are $11 and can be purchased in the athletic administration building or online.
Tickets will also be on sale at the door for $15 dollars a person.
After Songfest, the Kappa Theta Chapter of the National Order of Omega will recognize and honor those individuals and chapters for their achievements over the past year.
Awards will be given out for Outstanding Chapter President, Outstanding New Member, and Greek Man, Woman and Leader of the Year.
