Villanova Singers Timeline

In 1953 two young men approached a dean (who was in the throes of establishing a law school) and asked him to revive a moribund choral group as the director of music.;xNLx;;xNLx;Conrad “Moose” Urban and Jack Padova were the petitioners and Dean Harold Gill Reuschlein was the person who said yes when most people in his position would have said no. Along with Chuck Brockman, Bob Lima, Jack Eddinger, Jim Fox and others in the early years, they established a strong musical and fraternal foundation upon which the Villanova Singers have stood and thrived. The joy and friendship resulting from their efforts is evident as generations of Villanova Singers gathered at a Legacy Weekend and explained [Why We Sing](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNwQ5H8MILI).;xNLx;;xNLx;This site, created to preserve the story of the Villanova Singers, is dedicated with heartfelt thanks to our Founders.
