Cornell University Glee Club Concert at The University of Miami’s Maurice Gusman Hall
January 12, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Cornell University Glee Club is coming to town as part of their annual winter tour! On Saturday, January 12th at 7:30PM, one of the nation’s premiere men’s choral ensembles will perform at The University of Miami’s Maurice Gusman Hall. This is a spirited experience that neither you nor your family want to miss.
This concert will consist of all-male choral music from a variety of cultures, ranging from compositions of the European Renaissance to American spirituals. Specific repertoire will include “I Saw In Louisiana A Live Oak Growing”—a piece commissioned to the Glee Club from Alan Fletcher and premiered at the Glee Club’s 2012 Homecoming Concert. Further selections will include explorations of the theme “For Friendship, For You,” which plays off a line from Steven Sametz’s setting of “Not Heat Flames Up and Consumes,” by Walt Whitman. In the second half, there will be an appearance by The Hangovers, the a cappella subset of the Glee Club.
