About Us

The Yale Glee Club is Yale’s principal undergraduate mixed choir and oldest musical organization, currently in its 160th season.

Our plans for Fall 2020: Like choirs throughout the world, we will not be able to do many of the things we normally do this coming fall, but we are committed to maintaining the Glee Club as a vibrant community for Yale students who love to sing by making music together however we can, learning, serving our community, and cultivating connections with each other.

Although many things about Fall 2020 will be different, we will still be auditioning and welcoming new members, and we encourage students who love to sing to secure their spot in our ensemble now. Please visit our Auditions page for more information about how to join!

In recent seasons, the Glee Club has won 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 otherwordly, transcendent even”).  Learn more.



On October 17 at 7pm EDT, the Harvard, Princeton, and Yale Glee Clubs will present a virtual online benefit concert, Hand in Hand. 

Proceeds will benefit three non-profit organizations engaged in vitally important work for equity and justice in arts education - Boston’s Castle of our Skins, New Haven’s Music Haven, and Trenton Head Start. www.onfour.live/upcoming
