Princeton University Glee Club In Concert with Harvard, Yale
The Princeton University Glee Club will take part in a benefit concert, virtually and in person, with the glee clubs from Harvard and Yale universities, on Friday, October 29 at 7:30 p.m.
The concert, titled “Hand in Hand,” is streamed online, but each choir will be performing for live audiences from their home venues. Princeton’s club will sing at Richardson Auditorium, and admission is free.
For more than a century, choruses from Harvard, Princeton, and Yale universities have celebrated their friendship with a season of collaborative concerts during the fall semester. Last year, the Princeton University Glee Club continued to honor this tradition at a time of extraordinary change and challenge with a series of two virtual benefit concerts titled “Hand in Hand.”
During the concert, the livestream audience will have the opportunity to make an optional donation to Save the Music, a national nonprofit working towards equity in music education, supporting music programs in public schools in the choirs’ local communities of New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.
The concert will feature a range of choral works from across eras, cultures, and traditions in addition to recently composed works, and will conclude with the “Football Song” medleys from each school. The performance from Princeton will feature two new choral projects extracted from the Glee Club’s membership — the Sea Shanty Choir, performing music on a maritime theme, and Alegría, a group devoted to Latin American/Latinx choral music, conducted by the new Glee Club choral associate Mariana Corichi Gómez, Princeton University Class of 2021.
