About the Glee Club
Founded by student Samuel Ward Perrott, whose auditions turned out twice the available spots, our 60-voice, all-male choral ensemble first took the stage in December 1915. You can almost see the audience leaving Washington Hall, their delighted conversation lifting swirls of breath into the crisp air. So began our enduring legend as the oldest glee club at a Catholic university.
THE NDGC TODAY
From our four annual campus concerts to domestic and international tours, our voices carry around the world. Mini performances with a year-round rotation of classic Glee Club selections ensure that our members have something to work toward nearly constantly. Our musical endeavors even allow us to experience the talents of and sing with other groups, building a bridge between distinct cultures!
We invite all male students with the gift of vocal talent to join us in carrying on the tradition of bringing song to our campus and to audiences worldwide. Your Glee Club campus experience, coupled with the opportunity for tour and travel, will be the experience of a lifetime – one that you’ll treasure long after your time here as a student has ended.Audition Information
