A retro-blog: The University of Wisconsin-Madison was celebrating the 100th birthday of its fight song “On Wisconsin!” I was invited to write an official a cappella arrangement of the tune, and UW Concert Choir gave it an exhilarating premiere on November 13, 2009, conducted by Beverly Taylor.
Besides a live performance, the University has also prepared ample amount of activities and material related to this jovial celebration. For example, they’ve put together an archive; you can learn more than you want to know about the tune. Concert Choir and I are also included in a 30-minute documentary, to be aired on the Big-10 Network… National TV, en garde!
