Songfest is one of Pepperdine’s greatest and most unique traditions, and has long been a favorite experience shared by generations of students, alumni, and the greater Pepperdine family. This musical variety show, which features a cast of hundreds and a large pit orchestra, historically thrills audiences of all ages during its annual run each March. Students compete in groups, which perform 12-minute musical shows based on an overall theme, while a small ensemble of hosts perform specially-prepared material between group acts. Most importantly, Songfest provides each of its participants with an opportunity to forge wonderful friendships and share life-long memories. It is more uniquely "Pepperdine" than just about anything else that a student might do during his or her years at Seaver College. Songfest is pure, unadulterated, enthusiastic, uplifting, clean, good, old-fashioned fun- an unforgettable event for participants and audiences alike!
