Recognized as one of the finest all-male collegiate choral groups in the country, the University of Notre Dame Glee Club has a rich history of singing and brotherhood spanning the last 100 years. More than 2,000 young men have sung with the Club over the years, combining the rich traditions of Notre Dame with the highest standards of artistic excellence. Since 1915, the members of the Glee Club have enjoyed an exciting fraternal organization combined with an intensive study of vocal technique and musical styles. The group has toured from coast to coast and around the world, performing over one hundred concerts per year. As musical ambassadors of Notre Dame, the Glee Club has always been welcomed with warmth and enthusiasm. In only 5 weeks, the Glee Club will join the ND Symphony Orchestra in crossing the pond again for a 3 week tour through Poland and Germany. The money from the $1 million challenge will go towards defraying the cost of our concert attire of tuxedos and blazer/ties, and of course, towards the cost of our tours. Help us bring the spirit and cheer of Notre Dame to you through music this Notre Dame Day! A $10 donation and your 5 votes can go a long way in helping us continue to tour. The LIVE Notre Dame Day broadcast will kick-off at 18:42 pm ET (6:42 pm ET) on April 23rd at NOTREDAMEDAY.ND.EDU. The Glee Club will be performing live then as well, so don't miss the kick-off!
Some of our most memorable experiences take place when we are on tour. We tour across the country and the world, spreading the Notre Dame spirit through music wherever we go. Most recently, we visited Texas, New Mexico, Arizona during our Spring break. 2 years ago we visited Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, Austria, Germany, France and the United Kingdom on our Europe tour. The funding from Notre Dame Day goes directly to helping the members of club pay for the cost of tour. It also helps defray expenses such as the cost of our concert attire of tuxedoes, blazers and ties.
"My favorite memory would have to be being able to perform for my home parish during fall tour, and being able to share what I do in Glee Club with so many people from my days before Notre Dame." - baritone Adam Kuczynski, Class of '19 Check out our website http://www.ndgleeclub.com/experience/blog/ for more stories from clubbers!
