The Amherst College Glee Club

imageThe Glee Club is the oldest musical group at Amherst, which is also known as "The Singing College" for its long and varied musical history. Founded in 1865 as an eight-voice, all-male, student-directed musical club, the Glee Club is the fifth oldest collegiate choir in the nation and presently consists of thirty students selected through auditions from the Five College community. Its members have performed at venues

Sing Along

“Every time we score a goal, it’s the law that we have to sing ‘Lord Jeff,’” Glee Club President Alex Speir ’11 told the crowd assembled in the library of South on Thursday evening. In cooperation with the RCs, Speir and other members of the club arranged gatherings over the past two weeks at various dorms to teach their fellow students, especially first-years, several of Amherst’s classic college songs, just in time for Homecoming.
