The biggest college showdown between the University of Texas (UT) Longhorns and the University of Oklahoma (OU) Sooners is taking place next week – no, we aren’t talking about the Red River Rivalry football game, we mean the Red River Sing-Off! That’s right, every year on the day before the big game, talented singers from UT and OU come together to sing off in a free concert at Galleria Dallas. This year, catch the 5th annual Sing-Off on October 13 at 12:30, located in the Center Court at Galleria Dallas.

Fans of UT and OU travel far and wide to North Texas to cheer on their favorite team at the football game every year, and the Sing-Off is one more chance to participate in the famous rivalry (and enjoy listening to nationally recognized choral groups!) The Longhorn Singers will perform first at noon, and the OU Men’s Glee Club will go on next at 12:30 p.m.

“Every year, Galleria Dallas looks forward to hosting talented student singers from both the University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas,” said Galleria Dallas Marketing Director Martha Hinojosa. “This has become such a fun annual tradition at our center, and one that guests look forward to year after year. We adorn our center court with school-colored balloons above the ice to create a festive atmosphere. There is such a good-natured camaraderie and competition between the students, and the energy is electric.”

Singing competitions can be just as exciting as football games (or at least, something very entertaining that you can enjoy while waiting for the game!), so add this to your Red River Rivalry plans to make sure you have a good time the entire weekend!
