Why We Sing

The Singers are governed by an elected 8-member executive board of students. They sing an eclectic repertoire, ranging from sacred to patriotic, gospel to contemporary.

The Singers enjoy sharing their music with theVillanova Voices, their all-women counterpart, with whom they perform in concert in both the winter and spring.

History of The Villanova Singers: Seven Decades of Brothers in Song

1954-55 Villanova Singers under the direction of founder, Dean Harold Gill Reuschlein

For The Villanova Singers, “Brothers in Song” is not only a choral piece they perform every year, it is the anthem and motto of the group. Founded in 1953, the Singers legacy spans 65 years, and includes over 1000 Villanova Singers alumni who share a common passion for music, brotherhood and Villanova.

Alma Mater (Soloist Stephen Conway)

Al Dubin and Joseph Burke the two men responsible for Villanova’s Alma Mater, have a pretty impressive songbook.  Working together or with other collaborators, they are responsible for works such as I Only Have Eyes for You, We’re in the Money, Forty-Second Street, Pennies From Heaven, Rambling Rose, Shuffle Off to Buffalo, the Academy Award winning Lullaby of Broadway, and the infamous Tip Toe Through the Tulips With Me.
