About Us

Our History

Born out of 25 years of a cappella tradition in the Miami University Men's Glee Club, Open Fifth became an independent student organization in the spring of 2013. This change allowed the group to audition members from not only the MUMGC but also the entire university. While some changes have occured, much of the tradition lives on, and the sense of brotherhood has not faltered. We perform classic tunes from our history as well as new features at venues on and off campus.
