PERSON IN CROWD
(spoken) Glinda! Is it true - were you her friend?!

GLINDA
(spoken) Well - it depends on what you mean by "friend." I did
know her. That is, our paths did cross. At school:

STUDENTS
O hallowed halls and vine-draped walls
The proudliest sight there is
When grey and sere our hair hath turned
We shall still revere the lessons learned
In our days at dear old Shiz
Our days at dear old

GALINDA
Oh-oh-oh-oh-ol:

STUDENTS AND GALINDA
Dear old Shiz-zzzz

    General CommentAll the harmonies in this are fantastic ! So many different parts all resolving perfectly. Sounds fabulous lol.
    It really gives you a feel of what Shiz must be like . . .

    General CommentIt's used as a transition to the flashback. Note that, despite everything they went through Glinda denies ever being friends with Elphaba.
