Glee Club Preparing for Fall Concert

The Penn State Glee Club features a wide variety of students of all backgrounds. President Nate Hess is a history and political science double major who has been singing since elementary school. Hess describes the club as “a band of brothers in song.”

“The Glee Club is like a fraternity without a house,” Hess said. “We foster the love of singing in college and beyond.”

The Penn State Glee Club was founded in December 1889 and is considered “the most active and distinguished men’s collegiate chorus in the United States.”

Directed by Christopher Kiver, Penn State Glee Club is in its 123rd year, which makes the club the oldest musical organization at Penn State; not to be confused with the Penn State Thespians, who are a student-run musical theatre group.

The Glee Club has been preparing for their upcoming Fall Concert to be held this Saturday, November 3rd in the Schwab Auditorium at 8 p.m. The concert will showcase a wide array of songs from 16th century renaissance to modern day pieces, and can range from softer and sweeter sounding to more “macho” vocals.

Tickets to Saturday’s concert may be purchased at either Eisenhower or Schwab Auditorium. The cost of admission is $4 for students and $12 for adults. Those who purchase their tickets by Friday will receive a 40% discount.
