Current Crosbys and alumni celebrate group's 30th anniversary


By Alexa Abrams '13

The milestone celebration for the Binghamton Crosbys held in late April was packed with events for the more than 70 alumni in attendance, ranging from the graduating class of 1983 to last year's graduates. The weekend on campus was hosted by the current group of dashing Crosbys men and the Alumni Association.

Crosbys 2013 reunionOn Friday, campus tours got the weekend's activities started, followed by a Saturday brunch in the Chenango Room. Many of the Crosbys alumni are extremely devoted, and have come back to campus for numerous reunions and anniversary shows.

"This is the kind of community that the Crosbys have always been, everyone just shows up because its awesome," said Ted Trembinski '10.

As a Crosbys tradition, the alumni took a trip to Hot Truck in Ithaca to get its famous sandwiches and sing - because it wouldn't be an a cappella trip if there wasn't any singing involved.

At the show, held Saturday evening in the Anderson Center's Osterhout Theater, the alumni had the opportunity to sing favorites from their time in the group as well as join the current members onstage for "Strike Up the Band,"  better known as "Jack" to the Crosbys.

"'Whipping Post" made me forget who I was, what I was doing and where I was. I was just so involved in everything that was happening on stage," says Trembinski.

Matt Maley '13, the current group president, said he felt like a proud parent after the successful weekend.

"The alumni only had great praise to give us, which was hugely validating," he said.

The group had been planning for this event since last semester and reached out to alumni through a Crosbys listserv and conference calls. The alumni were ecstatic about returning to Binghamton to relive their time in the group.

"I miss looking at beautiful faces and breaking out into song," said Jeremy Ecock '12.
