The Virginia Glee Club joins the BucsWorth Men’s Chorus of East Tennessee State University for a collaborative performance at First Presbyterian Church Johnson City at 7:30 PM, Saturday, March 2, 2024.
Directed by Grammy Award winning conductor Frank Albinder, the Virginia Glee Club is the oldest musical organization at the University of Virginia and one of the oldest collegiate tenor-bass choirs in the nation, founded in 1871. Members of club come from different schools throughout the University and consider themselves a “fraternity of talent”.
Each year Club endeavors to take a tour to share the music they have learned through the year. Last year, Club embarked on an International tour to England and Wales and this year a domestic ‘Tour of the South’ including performances and collaborations in Johnson City, Chattanooga, Atlanta, Jackson, Birmingham, Charlotte, and Roanoke. Selections to be performed include pieces of both secular and sacred choral traditions highlighting the unique qualities of the tenor and bass voice.
The Virginia Glee Club is a 501(c)3 Non Profit organization and receives no direct funding from the University of Virginia. Club depends on the generosity of our alumni, parents and friends to continue spreading harmony, love and brotherhood across the nation and the world.
