One brother says: “I remember winning the musical portion of the Greek Week talent show in 1995 by playing the song “Piano Man.” I was a sophomore and it was my first year living in the House. I had the entire Newport Hall crowd of 2,000 people holding their beers up in the air… singing along. It was the first time I truly felt like a celebrity.”
