By the Light of the Moon          January 2014

I hope you enjoyed your holidays as much as I enjoyed mine, but I am glad to back back in the Red Gym and writing you again. Classes began this week, and on my way to class I was one of many eager to be punctual; if there is one upside to the frigid winter we are enduring, it is that everyone is moving with a purpose.
For the Singers this purpose is more than haste; for each show that the Singers put on they also provide a clinical training for each group they perform with, carrying on the tradition of being the ambassadors of goodwill. This is truly a wonderful organization to be a part of.

Best wishes,

Lee Roushar
Business Administrative Assistant

Hometown Heroes

Break is over and the Singers are in full swing! After a relaxing few weeks the troupe returned to the Humanities building for rehearsal before a full weekend of shows. Friday and Saturday night the Singers took over the stage at Hayward High School and followed this with a performance at Washburn High School the next night.

Jim Uphoff
"Always coil your cable over-under!" These are the parting words shared with me by Jim Uphoff, Technical Director for the Singers from 1995-1998. Uphoff, who worked as a sound engineer on Broadway for seven years after graduating, is now back in Madison, WI.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a massive, complex place. With more than 20,000 employees and 40,000 students, it's important for people to have a voice in issues related to campus.


Enter shared governance. It gives representation to academic staff, classified staff, faculty and students - all taking part in making significant decisions concerning the operation of the university.


My Fellow Alumni,


As I complete my first year on the Executive Board, I continue to be amazed at how much the Wisconsin Singers organization can change in just a few years! While the economy brought challenges, the Board and troupe worked harder than ever to get past them. As a newer board member and proud alum, I want to find a way to make an impact on an organization that has made such a big impact on me and so many other people.
