'University Hymn' marching to new beat

Saturday, June 27, 2009


The “University Hymn,” familiar to students, faculty and alumni since it was introduced during the 1950s, made its debut in a new march arrangement at athletic events in February.

The new arrangement is the work of Glen Tuomaala, who directs the Husky Sports Band. Local printing company executive Eric Palmer, the band’s percussion arranger and instructor, wrote the percussion parts. The hymn was originally composed by the late Amy Dale and the late Harvey Waugh, faculty members.
