Just as the finishing touches were being put on Krannert Center, another University of Illinois institution was being born—The Other Guys men’s a cappella group. Members of the Varsity Men’s Glee Club first performed as a newly minted offshoot ensemble in a spring 1969 concert at Foellinger Auditorium, treating the crowd to barbershop tunes, a bit of The Beatles, and an arrangement of Johnny Mathis’ That’s All. For five decades now, they’ve charmed audiences with plenty of good humor (including a rather famous ode to the university’s Morrow Plots), catchy arrangements, nearly 20 recordings, and more—all in those iconic Illini sweaters. Join alumni, performing by era, to celebrate half-a-century of music-making that crescendos to a massive all-Other Guys grand finale!
