75 years of Fryberger

By Shelby Stafford–

Fryberger is a well known tradition at the University of Louisville. It all started to honor Agne Fryberger, a music professor who has to retire early due to illness. Students started a concert singing songs a cappella on the front steps of Grawmeyer Hall. In its 75th year, it has become a staple of Greek life on campus, but it had not always been solely for the Greek community. The competion was started in 1937, and was campus-wide for decades. Participation started to dwindle and the Greek community kept the tradition alive. Still going strong now, Frygerger is one of the most popular fundraisers of the year.
