Classes and clubs have selected directors for Sing Song 2017, Fire and Ice, and preparations for building shows have begun.
Sing Song directors for class and club acts will have their first meeting Saturday Nov. 12.
Erika Teilmann, sophomore management and marketing major from Houston, will direct the sophomore class act.
“Laura and I, the other co-director, both didn’t pledge and we both really wanted to make sure there was a community for people built for other people who didn’t pledge,” Teilmann said. “Also giving an avenue for people that are in club to see their friends.”
Seven out of the ten acts will be lead by co-directors.
“I’ve had a lot of good opportunities to be in leadership position on campus and I’m really excited to get to lead a group that I love and am passionate about,” said Ashlyn Anthony, senior graphic design and advertising major from Dallas. Anthony will direct Ko Jo Kai’s club act.
Many of the directors have participated in previous class and club acts. Hunter Howard, senior Christian ministries major from Rowlett, will direct Trojan club act for the second time.
“I co-directed last year and felt like I didn’t give it everything last year and put a lot of it off and I feel like there is still a lot for me to do better this year,” Howard said.
Themes for each act will be chosen Monday at the director’s meeting.
“I’m looking forward to getting to see everyone interact and seeing how they grow and making an experience worth remembering,” Teilmann said.
Directors work hard to make a productive but fun environment for everyone involved.
“I like Sing Song cause we’re all pretty competitive at ACU and I like that spirit but the charity aspect is for sure one of the most important things to me,” Howard said.
Each winning act donates prize money to a charity of their choosing.
“It’s a tradition that I’ve always loved about ACU and I’m so excited to make a great act,” Anthony said.
Teilmann said, “It’s not about winning but having fun and the experience that goes along with it.”
