Cornell University Glee Club Concert
Christ Church Cathedral
LEXINGTON, KY (January 6, 2014) - The Cornell University Glee Club will be performing at Christ Church Catherdal (166 Market Street, Lexington, Kentucky 40507) on Monday, January 6th at 7:00PM as part of their 2014 Southern Tour. Tickets ($15 for adults, $10 for students) will be sold at the door and online at gleeclub.com.
As the oldest student organization at Cornell University dating back to the University’s founding in 1868. A recent tour brought the Glee Club to the 2012 International Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales where they placed second in the male choir category.
This concert will consist of all-male choral music from a variety of cultures, ranging from compositions of the European Renaissance to American spirituals. Specific repertoire will include “Lincoln the Musician”—a setting of the Gettysburg Address commissioned by Toby Twining and premiered on the Glee Club’s Fall Tour. Further selections will explore the theme of “Love and Loss” and the second half will feature an appearance by The Hangovers, the a cappella subset of the Glee Club.
“Throw out all stereotypes,” hailed Arthur Thigpen in The Washington Post on January 11, 2010. “The Cornell University Glee Club has developed a virtuosic choral sound that has far more in common with the King’s Singers than 40 guys with a keg. Under the direction of … John Rowehl, this ensemble performed with uniform tonal production, clear diction and laserlike intonation to a warmly receptive Saturday night audience at the Kennedy Center.”
The Glee Club will be conducted by Robert Isaacs.
