Favorite Miami Moment
I love any event that allows me the opportunity to hear from Miami's student vocal groups. Whether it's a formal presentation by the Glee Club or Choraliers or an impromptu acapella performance by the Cheezies or Mizfits, I am guaranteed to have chills running up my spine by the end of the song.
