Glee Club 'Bursts Out Singing' at fall concert

November 06, 2011

The Penn State Glee Club performed the world premiere of 'Everyone Burst Out Singing,' the U.S. premiere of 'Ancient Forests Once Stood Here' and a rousing chorus from Gilbert and Sullivan among other selections at its fall concert Saturday, Nov. 5, in Schwab Auditorium on Penn State's University Park campus. The group is one of three that will perform during the Penn State President's Concert, scheduled for Feb. 28 in Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh. The Glee Club is the oldest student organization at Penn State. Membership is by audition and is open to all undergraduate and graduate students at University Park.

The sixth annual Penn State President's Concert will mark a return to Heinz Hall, the site of the first concert. The event, which is a collaboration among the President's Office, the School of Music and the Alumni Association, brings Penn State student musicians to signature venues to perform for an audience made up largely of alumni and prospective students. In addition to the inaugural concert in Heinz Hall in 2007, past concerts have been held at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. (2008); the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia (2009); New York City's Carnegie Hall (2010); and The Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, Md. (2011). Information about this year's Penn State President's Concert will be available soon.
