LIVE FROM NEW YORK
The Opportunes, Harvard's oldest coed a cappella group, boarded limosines at their hotel at dawn on May 1 and went to the NBC studios in midtown Manhattan. By 6:15 they were gathered on the street rehearsing. At 8:30 the Today Show's cameras rolled, and they sang for the nation their signature tune, "Zombie Jamboree," a calypso number featuring killer choreography stolen from Michael Jackson. The appearance was supposed to provide an opportunity to promote Arts First, the festival upcoming at Harvard that weekend. But before Daniel Simon '99, publicity manager of the Opportunes, was asked to make his spiel, the host of the show cut to the weather. Simon is front and center in the photograph, singing a solo.
