U of M looking for lyrics to new Michigan song

If you fancy yourself a lyricist, it's time to sharpen your pencil and start writing. 

"The University of Michigan, starting all the way back into really the late 1800s, began to commission songs to celebrate and honor our dear university," Roger said. This continues today.

The University of Michigan Men's Glee Club is on the hunt. They're seeking lyrics for an original new "Michigan song."

The song will be premiered next April, marking U of M's bicentennial. 

Associate Director of Choirs and professor of conducting at the U of M School of Music, Theater and Dance Eugene Rogers joined us today to talk about the contest.
