Please join the University Glee Club of NYC for its 252nd Members' Concert - and first to be held online. With special guests SoHarmoniums.

About this Event

For 126 consecutive seasons beginning in the year of its founding in 1894, the University Glee Club of New York City has performed for a live audience in storied venues such as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.

Adapting to the unprecedented events of 2020, the men of the UGC chose to continue their weekly rehearsals; working not toward an in-person performance, but their first ever Virtual Concert.

Watching this concert from the comfort of your own home, you will be treated to an evening of entertaining holiday-inspired pieces from many genres, including selections by Franz Bielbl, Robert Frost, and an original piece by the UGC's conductor Francisco Núñez.

The UGC is thrilled to be joined by its two small ensemble groups, The Crickets and The Ten, as well as their very special guests, SoHarmoniums Women's Choir.

Group Viewing encouraged! With the goal of creating a shared social experience, the UGC has created Virtual Viewing Groups. If you would like to put togther a virtual group, select one of the Group ticket options. One week before the concert, the UGC will contact you to get your final guest list. On the evening of the Concert, once you click on the concert link, you will be automatically placed in a breakout group with your guests. The breakout groups will continue following the Concert for a Virtual Afterglow.

Whether you'll be watching solo or organizing a group to watch together virtually, count on a memorable evening of music and merriment to bring some much needed cheer to this most unusual holiday season.

Sing on!
