Our Mission

The Yale Glee Club is the University’s principal undergraduate SATB choir and oldest musical organization. Led by a School of Music faculty conductor, the 85-voice ensemble is comprised of students from many backgrounds with diverse musical and academic interests and is committed to the collaborative pursuit of musical excellence as a formative component of a liberal arts education.

The Glee Club’s repertoire spans eras, styles, and cultures, while acknowledging the tradition of concert music. The group promotes new contributions to the field of choral music through initiatives that highlight historically excluded voices, expanding the boundaries of collegiate choral singing and embracing change and the reflective conversations that come with it.

The Glee Club aims to make a positive impact in our local community and beyond through musical collaborations and arts-related service work. The group strives to cultivate a welcoming and inclusive community, foster friendships and camaraderie, and prepare members with the skills and context needed for a lifelong appreciation of music-making.
