Carnegie Hall
Eta brothers (L) John Sise '72, Dan Benson '63, Jim Froggatt '62, John Frey '82 outside Carnegie Hall.
During last fall's Rivalry Weekend in New York City, when Lehigh played Lafayette in Yankee Stadium, Etas John Sise '72, Dan Benson '63, Jim Froggatt '62, John Frey '82 met up at Carnegie Hall. Along with about 100 Lehigh Choral alumni, the four brothers sang the first half of a concert presented by Lehigh University Choral Arts.

Four ensembles comprise Lehigh Choral Arts: Choral Union, University Choir, Dolce, and the historic Glee Club, which is enjoying its 138th year. The concert featured compositions by Dr. Stephen Samitz, LU Choral Arts professor.

Dan Benson reports, "I and other Etas have been singing with the Choral alumni for several years, mostly at Lehigh, doing such major works as the Tchaikovsky "1812 Overture" (in Russian)."
