About the Event: 

The Yale Glee Club cordially invites a limited number of YCL members to join them for a three course dinner in London. It promises to be a wonderful evening and a great chance to reconnect with the Yale music scene in an informal setting, as well as to meet many of the current crop of Yale undergraduates.


About the Glee Club:

From its earliest days as a group of thirteen men from the Class of 1863 to its current incarnation as an eighty-voice chorus of women and men, the Yale Glee Club, Yale’s principal undergraduate mixed chorus and oldest musical organization, has represented the best in collegiate choral music.


During its recent 150th anniversary season, the Glee Club’s performances received rave reviews in the national press, from the New York Times (“One of the best collegiate singing ensembles, and one of the most adventurous…an exciting, beautifully sung concert at Carnegie Hall”) to The Washington Post (“Under the direction of Jeffrey Douma, the sopranos - indeed, all the voices - sang as one voice, with flawless intonation…their treacherous semitones and contrapuntal subtleties became otherworldly, transcendent even”).


The students who sing in the Yale Glee Club might be majors in music or engineering, English or political science, philosophy or mathematics. They are drawn together by a love of singing and a common understanding that raising one’s voice with others to create something beautiful is one of the noblest human pursuits. The Glee Club’s repertoire embraces a broad spectrum of choral music from the 16th century to the present, including Renaissance motets, contemporary choral works, world music, choral orchestra masterworks, spirituals and folk songs, and traditional Yale songs.
