To incite an immediate and personable relationship between students and art music.

Together in strophe and song we are chorus
We call and respond, though we may not be flawless,
We promise our glorious voices
                                                        will flow through our hearts
And our heads to wherever we might like
To follow our passion, creatively lawless
The crest of a wave crashes forth under all of us
I am the egg man
They are the egg man
I am the walrus!
