AMHERST, Mass. – The Amherst College Men’s Glee Club will present its annual Senior Concert on Saturday, April 25, at 5 p.m. in Buckley Recital Hall in the Arms Music Center at Amherst College. Conducted by Mallorie Chernin and assistant Todd Fruth ’08, the Glee Club will be accompanied by pianist Ophelia Hu ’12. The concert is open to the public at no charge and seating is by general admission.

Each year the music for the Senior Concert is chosen by graduating students who pick favorite songs from their four years of participation in the Glee Club. This year, singers will perform a variety of sacred and secular music, songs of other nations and spirituals—including pieces by Billy Joel, Gilbert & Sullivan, Randall Thompson Vaughan Williams, Wendell Whalum and many others. The concert will conclude with the traditional “Senior Song” by James S. Hamilton (class of 1906) and the passing of the historic senior chalice.

Please note the unusual start time of 5 p.m. For more information please contact director Mallorie Chernin at 413/542-2484 or email mchernin@amherst.edu.
