Right now, when we’re all forced to be apart, we want to find new ways to “be” together. So let’s form a mass choir to sing Union’s iconic school song Slinga de Ink!
Alumni, students, employees, parents, friends—you’re all invited to join in. Send us your video singing Slinga de Ink. Feel free to be creative. Sing a part. Submit multiple videos singing different parts. Just be sure to upload them by the end of the day on Monday, April 20, 2020, and we’ll combine them all into an epic Slinga de Choir.
- Record yourself singing Slinga de Ink along with the background music below. You’re welcome to wear earphones so we can’t hear the background music. Feel free to be creative, but make sure we can hear you well without a lot of background noise. We want you to sing with this track so that we’re all in the same key and singing the same tempo.
- Use the words below. The song has evolved a little bit over the years, so we want to make sure we’re all singing the same words.
- Let us know who you are. At the beginning or end of your video, be sure to include the following things:
- Say your name and spell it out
- Where you live (city and state or country)
- What year you last attended or graduated from Union (if applicable)
- What you studied at Union (if applicable)
- Upload your video to our special dropbox (click here). Please upload the highest quality produced by your phone or camera if possible.
- The deadline for submissions is April 20, 2020. We added one more week because we want even more of you to have a chance to participate.
