Greek Sing

In 1968, Greek Sing was founded as a performance opportunity for fraternities and sororities to showcase their musical talents. The program is completely produced and directed by student members of the Penn State fraternity and sorority community.

Each year, fraternities and sororities are paired or placed in what is called a tri-ad and are assigned a Broadway show. Approximately twenty groups are selected to participate and are judged in a number of categories such as, Best Costumes, Best Set, Best Choreography, Best Male Lead Singer, Best Female Lead Singer, Best Band or Music Accompaniment, Best Long Performance, Best Short Performance, and Best Overall Performance.

In 1995, the Gayle Beyers Panhellenic Scholarship was created to provide recognition and financial assistance to outstanding women students enrolled at Penn State University. Gayle Beyers was a Penn State fraternity and sorority adviser who gave hours of dedication to helping the fraternity and sorority community. The Panhellenic Council later decided that all profits from Greek Sing would go to the Gayle Beyers Panhellenic Scholarship. In 2012, the fund was re-named the Gayle Beyers Scholarship and eligibility for the scholarship was revised to include all students at Penn State.

The event is still held annually during the fall semester. The final staged performance is held in the Eisenhower Auditorium and is open to the general public.
