The Friars Winterpalooza


City Opera House Sat, Jan 14, 2023 8:00 PM


The Friars, the a cappella subset of the University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club, will perform at the City Opera House on Saturday, January 14, 2023, at 8:00p.m. For more than 60 years, The Friars have been “entertaining” audiences with questionable choreography, bad dad jokes, and boy-band hits. Don’t miss your chance to hear a fun evening of music performed by this talented and entertaining group!

Founded in 1955 by Dr. Walter Collins, The Friars were created because Dr. Collins believed that it was possible to build a vocal group using merriment and juvenile behavior to produce divine harmony. Since that time, this crack squad of super crooners has been bringing mirth and music to all mankind - from the Pizza House to the White House, South University to South America.

Armed only with their golden pipes and a marked propensity towards verve and vivacity, they ride through time, laughing, singing, drinking. Wherever there is injustice, they'll be there. Wherever there is sadness, they'll be there. Wherever there is pizza and beer money, you can bet they'll be there - seeking only to spread their sweet melodies unto the four corners of the earth and preserve the cherished and time-honored tradition of… The Friars.
