Happy Holidays from your Clemson Alumni Association

Happy Holidays from your Clemson Alumni Association

May your home be filled with happiness, your heart with love and your days with joy. We hope you will enjoy these three selections by Clemson University's exclusive all female a cappella ensemble, Take Note. The group is comprised of 12-16 women selected from the larger Clemson choral ensembles by audition. Since 1997, Take Note continues to perform at a variety of venues such as the President's Box during football games, in local schools, at various community functions and performs three concerts each year in the Brooks Center. The ladies of Take Note have made quite a name for themselves throughout the campus and the nation and are dedicated to sharing their musical talent, not only with those at Clemson University but with fellow Tigers all over the world. Go Tigers!
