May 19 ~ Acclaimed Glee Club to Present Concert at Thomas Circle

Fri., May 19 (7:30-9pm): The University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club is touring this spring in celebration of the University’s bicentennial anniversary. The final concert of the tour will take place inside the soaring John Russell Pope-designed sanctuary of the National City Christian Church on Thomas Circle. Featured will be works celebrating the bicentennial, including pieces commissioned specifically for the Glee Club by the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance ‘s professors of composition Kristin Kuster and William Bolcom — along with other works within a wide range of styles, from classical repertoire to contemporary popular music. And, of course, a Men’s Glee Club concert would not be complete without several classic U of M songs.
