Our upcoming season will include concert tours to Montreal, the Pacific Northwest, and Alaska, joint concerts with the Harvard and Princeton choruses, collaborations with the Yale Philharmonia (Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 3), Yale Camerata (José Maurício Nunes Garcia Te Deum), and Yale Symphony Orchestra (Benjamin Britten War Requiem), premieres of exciting new choral works, and much more. 

In recent seasons, the Glee Club has earned 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.
