A word "from the podium"
February / March 2023
Collaborative / Compassionate / Creative
These three words capture much of what is good and right about the Men’s Glee Club.
Collaborative: 78 singers, representing over 33 different majors, converge on Weigel stage three times each week for rehearsal. They bring with them their intelligence, talent, and good will. The adage, “The whole is greater than the sum its parts,” certainly applies to the Men’s Glee Club.
Compassionate: Instruction is student-centered — meet the singers where they are. Inspire them, challenge them, and teach them in order that they might move to the next level of accomplishment. The Big/Little program is all about using the experienced to help the newest. MGC members care about each other, and the corporate “united we stand” attitude is inspirational to all.
Creative: In the MGC we combine enthusiasm, intellect and talent as we pursue the path to creative and artistic expression. In addition to music, the MGC singers are creative in their good-natured humor. So often I laugh in rehearsal as I watch them and hear their banter.
