KNOXVILLE — Move over “American Idol.” Students at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, were singing in contests long before that hit television show.

All-Sing, a competition that began in 1932, will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, and 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, in Cox Auditorium in the Alumni Memorial Building.

This year the theme is “All Sing Like a Rock Star,” and the competition includes 17 student organizations performing songs from “Dream Girls,” “Chicago,” “Godspell,” “Divas of Music,” “Mary Poppins,” “Smokey Joe’s CafĂ©” and “Footloose.”

Awards will be given for best female and male soloists. Divisional and overall awards also will be given.

Tickets are $8 for students and $15 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased in the Central Ticket Office at (865) 974-3381 or through Tickets Unlimited (865) 656-4444.

The competition is presented by All Campus Events (ACE). ACE is a component of the Central Program Council, which represents seven committees under the Office of Student Activities. The goal of this student-driven organization is to plan campus events that have become longstanding UT traditions. Each year ACE organizes Volunteer Challenge, Homecoming, All-Sing and Carnicus.
