University of Michigan Men's Glee Club - 150th Anniversary

Founded in 1859, The University of Michigan Men's Glee Club is one of the oldest collegiate choruses in the United States and the oldest continually-run student organization on the Michigan campus. Long acclaimed as one of the finest male choruses in the world, the Glee Club has achieved this stature by sustaining and respecting the traditions which have been established during its 150 year history. The graduate and undergraduate members of the Glee Club, chosen by audition at the beginning of both the Fall and Winter terms, represent a wide spectrum of majors in a majority of the University's 19 schools and colleges. Its student officers are responsible for the management of all non-musical Glee Club operations.

The Glee Club has become renowned for its wide repertoire of music that incorporates selections from different musical styles and periods including Renaissance motets, Romantic anthems, opera choruses, folksongs, spirituals, contemporary works, and, of course, Michigan songs. The Friars, an eight-member subset of the Glee Club, are in their 54th year and serve as an extension of Club as they maintain an ambitious performing schedule.

This page features performances from the 150th Anniversary reunion concert, held in Ann Arbor on April 10, 2010.
