The Amherst College Glee Club
The Glee Club is the oldest musical group at Amherst, also known as "The Singing College" for its long and varied musical history. Founded in 1865 as an eight-voice, student-directed musical club, the Glee Club presently consists of forty men selected through auditions from the Amherst College community. Its members have performed at venues ranging from the White House to the Notre Dame Cathedral, and in over 58 countries all over the globe to date.
The Glee Club is made up of men's voices (TTBB), but often sings in conjunction with the other groups that make up the Amherst College Choral Society: the Women's Chorus, the Madrigals and the Concert Choir.
For the fall of 2015, the Glee Club rehearses on Tuesdays from 7-9 pm, and on Thursdays from 9-10:30 pm. Auditions will be held from Saturday, September 5 to Tuesday, September 8. For more information, please come to the Orientation Showcase on Saturday, September 5 at 7:30 pm, in Buckley Recital Hall, Arms Music Building.
