Members of the Compulsive Lyres, a U-M a cappella vocal ensemble,
share their talents with the Board of Regents Sept. 19. Before the
group broke into their harmonious rendition of "The Star-Spangled
Banner," students were honored for winning the International
Championship of Collegiate A Cappella choirs in New York last April.
It was the first time a U-M group had won the national title in
a cappella music. Regent Olivia Maynard read a resolution praising
the group's accomplishment.
In addition to the choral group, Regent S. Martin
Taylor read a resolution recognizing the Michigan Academic Competition
Team for winning three national titles. The students were the 2002
College Bowl national champs for the thir year in a row and the
fifth time in seven years, Taylor noted. (Photo
