Cornell Glee Club at the Kennedy Center

  • 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
  • The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Terrace Theater, 2700 F Street, NW, Washington, DC
This year, Cornell University turns 150 years old -- and the Cornell Glee Club (the oldest student organization on campus, now one of America's premiere men's choirs) is helping mark the occasion with a concert tour through the most populous region of our country.  As we look back over fifteen decades, we are appropriately exploring music about TIME.

The Cornell University Glee Club
Robert Isaacs, conductor
Northeast Tour 2015

The Cornell University Glee Club will perform in the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater as part of its 2015 Northeast Tour. The concert program will feature both classical and contemporary men’s choral music, including this year’s commission from the Thomas A. Sokol Commissioning Endowment, Not One Word by Pulitzer Prize finalist Christopher Cerrone.

The Glee Club’s a cappella subset, The Hangovers, will also perform a few pop favorites, and the program will close with beloved Cornell Songs including the Evening Song and Alma mater. The Washington Post referred to a past Glee Club performance in Washington as “Cornell Night” and noted that the “audience was filled with enthusiastic alumni, who quickly joined in” singing the Cornell Songs.

Performance Timing: Part One - 60 min.
Intermission - 15 min.
Part Two - 45 min.
