A Sound Idea

Years before “Glee,” there was the UWGB Sound Idea, the university show/jazz choir under the direction of Prof. Trini Chavez. (Pictured here: the debut ensemble of 1985-86.) The group performed at special events, conventions, competitions, UWGB concerts and periodic tours of selected Wisconsin high schools. A highlight of the all-scholarship group’s decade-plus run was an April 1994 booking as the opening act for comedy’s Smothers Brothers at the Weidner Center.
