The Harvard Glee Club, America’s oldest collegiate choir, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 17 at the Baptist Temple at the corner of Morris and Quarrier Streets.
The Glee Club is widely considered to be the top collegiate men’s choir in America. In 2005, it was the only such group invited to perform at the national convention of the American Choral Directors’ Association.
The group takes annual spring tours to various regions of the United States, as well as regular summer tours overseas. This year’s tour will include the Upper Midwest and Canada, in addition to West Virginia.
Members of the Harvard Glee Club will be arriving on Wednesday afternoon, March 17. Their performance will be that evening at Baptist Temple and they will not depart Charleston until 2 p.m. Thursday, March 18.
The group will need a number of host families who will pick them up at the reception after the concert, provide a place to sleep that night, serve them breakfast in the morning and then transport them downtown after breakfast to a predetermined location. The reconvened group will then be treated to a brief tour of Charleston prior to their departure for Cincinnati at 2 p.m.
If you are interested in hosting one or, hopefully, more of these young men, please let us know as soon as possible. We want their day in Charleston to be one that they will not forget. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Hopkins@post.harvard.edu to volunteer.
