Jeffrey Reynolds, the Membership Director of The University Glee Club of New York, is inviting any interested singers to join him and other UGC Club members at a University Glee Club Pre-Glow Membership/Singer meet and greet Thursday, September 20th from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. The event will take place at the home of Broadway producer Tracy Arons at 627 West End Avenue-entire brownstone. Food, drink and entertainment will be provided. RSVP Please.
For those you who don’t know, The University Glee Club is an all-male, 150 strong, singing fraternity primarily made up of college graduates from all professions and backgrounds. The club is a 501C3, whose mission is to support and promote other male collegiate singing groups and also provide grants and performance opportunities for a variety of other musical artists. We perform fundraisers for churches, hospitals and homeless shelters as well as participating in holiday events around the city. Twice a year the group sponsors a concert at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully or Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center inviting other glee clubs to perform with them. On January 18th 2013, both The Harvard Men’s Glee Club and the Naval Academy will join the UGC for their winter concert at Carnegie Hall followed by their famous “Black Tie Afterglow Gala.” The club also invites collegiate ensembles, Broadway and cabaret performers and other musical artists to entertain after each of the club’s rehearsals.
Lastly, our conductor, Francisco J. Núñez, a recipient of a 2011 MacArthur Fellowship presented to individuals for their “exceptional originality in and dedication to their creative pursuits,” is the artistic director of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City™ (YPC), a composer, conductor, visionary, and leading figure in music education. In 1988 he founded YPC to provide children of all ethnic, religious, and economic backgrounds with a safe haven for personal and artistic growth and to date has changed the lives of thousands of young people. YPC is widely recognized for its exceptional caliber and has been cited as a model of artistic excellence and diversity.
