In 1971, two law professors formed an octet composed of members of the Law School community to sing carols in the Great Hall. The activity quickly grew in scale, and in 1977, students organized their first musical production, Trial By Jury. The show was presented once in the historic Silverman Great Hall, and once at Houston Hall.

Check out their upcoming production of "RENT" (April 10-13) above.
