"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Hail the Victors
"This film should be played loud!"
This was presented at the groundbreaking ceremonies for the Earl V. Moore Building School of Music, Theatre, and Dance renovation and expansion project. Arrangement was done by a graduate student instructor at the School.
The post that went up earlier reminded me of a COOL STORY I wanted to share quickly with the board...
I was on vacation last week playing golf with my dad. The course was kind of out in the middle of no where, but we could hear a high school marching band in the distance, clearly practicing for the start of their season. As we made our way closer to the club house, it became clear the song the band was practicing was the Victors. It sounded absolutely beautiful.
Perhaps the best part is that I was visiting my dad, who lives in central Ohio. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expect that.. someone will probably get fired over it. Definitely a cool story for you all!
My 3 year old daughter was supposed to be going to sleep. We caught her singing her version of 'Hail the Victors'. Couldn't think of a reason not to post it on MGoBlog.
