AMHERST, Mass.—The Amherst College Men's Glee Club will present its annual Senior Concert at 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, in Buckley Recital Hall in the Arms Music Building on the Amherst College campus. The Glee Club is directed by Mallorie Chernin; Katie Vogele, a 2006 graduate of Mount Holyoke College, is assistant director. The concert is free and open to the public.

The music for the Senior Concert is chosen by the seniors, who pick favorite songs from their four years of participation in the Glee Club. The singers will perform sacred and secular music, songs of other nations and spirituals, including music by Jacob Handl, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Kurt Knecht, William Dawson and many more. The concert will end with the traditional “Senior Song” by James S. Hamilton of the Amherst College class of 1906 and the passing of the historic senior chalice.
