Event description: 

For more than a century, the Glee Clubs of Harvard, Princeton, and Yale Universities have celebrated the deep friendship between these storied choral unions with a season of collaborative concerts during the fall semester.

In honoring this tradition at a time of extraordinary change and challenge, on October 17 at 7pm EDT, the three 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.

The suggested minimum donation is $5, but we encourage you to give as generously as you can. Students can register for free.

Each ensemble will share new and past performances by its singers, and the concert will end with a joint virtual performance of a new arrangement by Brandon Waddles of the Isley Brothers classic Caravan of Love commissioned for this concert. The song will be introduced by Dr. Cornel West, currently Professor of Public Philosophy at Harvard Divinity School, and a former faculty member at both Princeton and Yale.
