For more than a century, choruses from Harvard, Princeton, and Yale Universities have celebrated their deep friendship with a season of collaborative concerts during the fall semester. Last year the Princeton University Glee Club continued to honor this tradition at a time of extraordinary change and challenge with a series of two virtual benefit concerts: Hand in Hand.
In this third Hand in Hand concert, each choir will be performing for live audiences in their home venue: Woolsey Hall at Yale, Richardson Auditorium at Princeton, and Harvard’s Sanders Theatre. The program will be simulcast to each venue and also broadcast live online. During the concert the livestream audience will have the opportunity to make an optional donation to Save the Music, a national non-profit doing work for equity in music education whose grants support music programs in public schools in our local communities in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Jersey.
The concert will feature a vibrant and diverse array of choral works from across eras, cultures, and traditions in addition to recently composed works, and will conclude with the beloved Football Song medleys from each school. The performance from Princeton will feature two new choral projects extracted from the Glee Club’s membership - the ’Sea Shanty Choir’, performing music on a maritime theme, and ‘Alegría’, a group devoted to Latin American/Latinx choral music, conducted by the new Glee Club choral associate Mariana Corichi Gómez ’21.
