A NOTE FROM THE 2020 EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
To All Our Dear Friends and Fans of Spring Sing,
In light of local and global developments regarding COVID-19, the Student Alumni Association, Spring Sing Executive Committee and UCLA Alumni Affairs would like to announce a big change to this year’s programming. Although May 15 is still some time away, we have decided not to hold our traditional Spring Sing event this year. Our team is hard at work, creating new methods to share with you the narratives, music, comedy and art of our incredibly talented students. We will dearly miss performing live for you all, but we feel it is the best decision to ensure the health and well-being of the artists, student body and broader UCLA community.
Since it’s conception in 1945, Spring Sing has become a living, breathing entity of the student body. Previously finding a home at the Hollywood Bowl, UCLA Tennis Center and Pauley Pavilion, it has continually proven that it’s not about where you are, but who you are sharing your time with. Regardless of its new format, we are confident this year’s show will continue to bring people from unique backgrounds together for a night of artistic celebration and human connection.
Despite the risk and uncertainty our global communities are facing, we wholeheartedly believe in the unparalleled power of art as a source of personal healing and community building. In UCLA’s Centennial year we hope to honor the incredible progress of this Institution and usher in this new phase of transformative growth in the best way we know how; by carrying on the legacy of resilience, innovation and passion our fellow Bruins have instilled within us.
Stay tuned for more updates on the immense talent being showcased this year! Wishing good health and safety to you and those you love.
With optimism for what is to come,
Jess Grimes Exp. ‘20
Executive Director Spring Sing 2020
