Women’s Glee Club
Our choir is over 60 voices strong, and our membership is by audition. Our members, who represent a wide variety of majors and interests across the university, range from first-year through graduate students. We are active throughout the school year with concerts on and off campus, including sharing fan-favorite tunes with tailgating fans before home football games (Go Bucks!). We sing a wide and varied repertoire, with emphasis on works by and women and BIPOC composers. When you join Women’s Glee, you are not just joining a choir — you are joining a community of individuals committed to musicianship, outreach, and community building.
We have spent the last year together, apart; we kept collective singing in our hearts and minds and on our screens, anticipating days when our gathering would again be safe and joyous. We recorded ourselves alone — unintentional soloists brought together into collective video artifacts that nod to the choral art, and are yet so different from it. We distanced ourselves from one another for the safety of all, as our beloved art was suddenly labeled "dangerous."
Courage, though, is the provenance of the artist. Innovations, revelations and consternations are part and parcel to the skilled work of the soul. The Women’s Glee Club looks ahead to seasons of growth, connectedness, and reimagining the possibilities of our beloved choral art. We reconvene with renewed appreciation and attention to our legacy and our alumnae; the foundational traditions provide firm footing as we create a vision for our future. We are the architects of the new normal. Come and build with us.
