Join Us!

Join us for our 6th biennial REUNION weekend hosted by the MGC Alumni Society, as we kick off our sesquicentennial (150th), year-long celebration. 

Come to:

  • REHEARSE — the pursuit of artistic excellence.
  • RENEW friendships from your years at Ohio State.
  • REFRESH those musicianship skills that you learned while in MGC.
  • RECONNECT with brothers with whom you have lost contact.
  • REVIEW the "Buckeye Medley" — the notes that are written vs. the notes you sing.
  • REMEMBER what it was like to sing for Jim Gallagher and Robert Ward.


How firm thy friendship,

Tim Best
President, MGC Alumni Society

Robert J. Ward
Conductor, Men’s Glee Club

James Gallagher
Conductor emeritus, Ohio State Men’s Glee Club
