While it might not be exactly like the similarly titled television phenomenon, the Cornell Glee Club is still likely to blow you away with singing virtuosity. The group has performed on Malaysian television, in the Moscow Conservatory, sung in more than a dozen languages and logged hundreds of thousands of miles while bringing music to millions of people as near and far as the students of Cornell and rural school children in Taipei.
Drawing on a 125-year history of vocal performance, the Glee Club will be performing on Wednesday, Jan. 5 at Congregation B’nai Israel at 3600 Riverside Blvd.
Songs will include traditional Cornell songs and choral music from a variety of cultures, ranging from compositions from the European Renaissance to folk music of the Americas. You’ll also get to hear The Hangovers, the a capella subset, performing popular music.
