About Us

The Yale Glee Club is Yale’s principal undergraduate mixed chorus and oldest musical organization, having just finished our 161st season.

We are excited to welcome another new class of wonderful incoming singers to join us for our 162nd season! If you are a new Yale student who loves to sing or a returning Yale student who has not sung with us before, we’d love to see you at our auditionswhich begin on Aug. 31Learn more about our audition process, or complete an audition form and sign up for an audition time now! 

After a year in which nearly all of our activities were virtual, the 2021-22 season saw the Glee Club return to in-person singing, public concerts, and even a concert tour to California. We look forward to returning to even more of our cherished traditions in the 2022-23 season, to many exciting collaborations, and to lots of beautiful music.

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 otherworldly, transcendent even”).  Learn more.
