“It’s a great kickoff to the homecoming weekend for alumni to hear songs and for the community to experience the diversity of choral groups at Elon,” said Wise, also a sophomore at Elon.

This isn’t the only choral event al Elon this weekend, as they are singing the alma mater before the football game on Saturday.

“Dr. Futrell, our choir director, is from Louisiana and he is making jambalaya for a tent being set up at the tailgate,” said Wise. “We will be singing the alma mater before the game and alumni are invited to join us on the field.”

Other homecoming activities this weekend include the football game against The Citadel, Men’s and Women’s basketball games, and the homecoming concert featuring rapper Timeflies.

The concert on Friday has no entrance fee and is free to all members of the Elon community.
