Virginia's Messenger's of Harmony, Love and Brotherhood
Founded in 1871, the Virginia Glee Club is the oldest musical organization at the University of Virginia. The Club’s members, primarily undergraduate students, come from every school and college within the University. Members consider the group a “fraternity of talent,” committed to performing at a professional level, promoting fellowship, and preserving longstanding tradition. Throughout its history, the Virginia Glee Club has been consistently recognized as a leader among American men’s choruses, performing a variety of sacred and secular music in the classical tradition. The group performed for former President Bill Clinton at the national celebration of Thomas Jefferson’s 250th birthday and has also been heard on broadcasts of NBC’s Today Show, National Public Radio’s Performance Today, Virginia Public Radio, and the Voice of America. In addition to presenting on-grounds concerts, the group has toured widely, both domestically and abroad, and has collaborated with some of the finest women’s choruses in the eastern and southern United States. The Club toured France in the summer of 2000, visiting Paris, Lyon, Marseilles, Aix en Provence, Carcassonne, and Nice. Recent collaborations have also included Mozart’s Requiem, with the Roanoke College Oriana Singers, Bach’s Magnificat, with the Wellesley College Choir and Poulenc’s Gloria, with the Chatham College Choir. With this concert, the Glee Club closes out its 141st season which culminated with a successful Tour of the West Coast and looks forward to a Tour of the Mid-West in the spring of 2013.
