What a great opportunity we have coming your way this January: a concert by the world-renowned Cornell Glee Club! Don’t miss this rare chance to enjoy a piece of Cornell so close to home.
Here’s what others who have heard the Glee Club sing have said:
“The Cornell University Glee Club has developed a virtuosic choral sound that has far more in common with the King’s Singers than 40 guys with a keg. Under the direction of Assistant Conductor John Rowehl, this ensemble performed with uniform tonal production, clear diction and laserlike intonation to a warmly receptive Saturday night audience at the Kennedy Center.” – The Washington Post
“I was just bowled over by your performance. Seeing/hearing those words so sincerly and lovingly rendered — it was almost too much to bear. What you communicated to your audience was way beyond technical mastery. You guys truly LIFTED ME UP!” -Choral Conductor at ACDA Eastern Division Conference
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.

About the Glee Club
Since the first days of the Orpheus Glee Club more than one hundred and twenty-five years ago, the Glee Club of Cornell has become a home to thousands of young men who have traveled in all walks of life, from music and medicine, to agriculture and astronomy. The group has performed on Malysian television, in the Moscow conservatory, sung in more than a dozen languages and logged hundreds of thousands of miles, brought music to millions of people as near and far as the students of Cornell and rural school children in Taipei.
Today, the Cornell University Glee Club is led by Professor Scott Tucker and is considered as one of the premier collegiate ensembles in the United States.
