September 21, 2012

More than 150 young men will raise the roof in the Forum and Esber Recital Hall as they join voices at the first Penn State Glee Club "Men of Song" Festival, to be held Saturday, Oct. 13, on the University Park campus. Aimed at young men with changing and changed voices in grades eight to 12, the festival is intended to foster a lifelong love of singing and provide an opportunity for younger singers to perform with a collegiate men’s choir. Visiting students will rehearse and perform with both the Hi-Lo's and Glee Club, under the direction of Christopher Kiver. The festival will conclude with an informal concert at 3:30 p.m. in Esber Recital Hall, Music Building I on the University Park campus of Penn State. Admission is free and the public is welcome.

An application form and more details are posted here.

The Penn State Glee Club, a 75-voice men’s choir, comprises students from all academic units across the University Park campus. Recent highlights include a performance at Heinz Hall, Pittsburgh, a tour of New Zealand in 2010, and an appearance at the 2010 American Choral Directors Association Eastern Division conference. The Hi-Lo’s are a select group of 16 singers drawn from the membership of the Glee Club, known for their entertaining and energized performances.
