Cornell Glee Club 150th Anniversary Concert

Praised by The Washington Post for its “virtuosic choral sounds” and diverse and challenging repertoire of classical and contemporary men’s choral music, the Cornell University Glee Club presents this musical celebration of its sesquicentennial.  Founded in 1868, it is now regarded as one of the nation’s premiere choral ensembles.

“[T]he Glee Club of Cornell has become a home to thousands of young men who have traveled in all walks of life, from music and medicine, to agriculture and astronomy. The group has performed songs of Bernstein on Malaysian television and songs of Shostakovich in the Moscow Conservatory, sung in more than a dozen languages and logged hundreds of thousands of miles, and brought music to millions of people as near and far as the students of Cornell and rural school children in Taipei.” (Songs From the Hill - A History of the Cornell Glee Club)

This concert is not presented by Strathmore.
