THE MUSICAL INSIGNIA OF THE UNIVERSITY OF DETROIT CHORUS
IS A REPRODUCTION OF "DISTLEFINK" FROM PENNSYLVANIA
DUTCH FOLKLORE. THIS BIRD IS ACTUALLY A GOLDFINCH
WHICH FED ON THISTLE SEED AND FURNISHED HIS NEST WITH
THISTLE DOWN. FOR THE CHORAL SINGER, THE "DISTLEFINK"
HAS SPECIAL POWERS, BRINGING NOT ONLY GOOD LUCK BUT
SWEETNESS OF SONG AS WELL. THE TWIN TULIPS BRING FORTH
FAITH IN WHAT YOU DO. THE DOUBLE BAND AROUND THE
CIRCUMFERENCE KEEPS ONE STRONG AND SECURE IN THE WORLD
OF MUSIC.
