Album celebrates 175 years of DePauw musical tradition

Monday, December 24, 2012

As 2012 and DePauw University's 175th anniversary year come to a close, the DePauw School of Music announced the culmination of two important new projects -- creation of a its own recording label, DePauw University Recordings, and the first recording in the new catalog, "Songs of Old DePauw."

The commemorative CD features 21 tracks of music, arranged and conducted by Gregory Ristow, director of choral activities, and wonderfully sung by the DePauw Chamber Singers and accompanied by pianist Amanda Hopson.

Included on the recording are chestnuts such as "Old Gold," "Tiger Yell Song" and "My Girl's a Hullabaloo," along with a special tribute track, the unforgettable "Toast to DePauw," sung by the late baritone Dr. Stanley Irwin.

The new CD and 16-page booklet are available to purchase for $10 at Eli's Bookstore located at 6 East Washington St., Greencastle.
