PSU Glee Club coming to Lititz

By on October 25, 2017

The Penn State University Glee Club will present a concert at 3 p.m., on Sunday, Nov. 12, at the Lititz Church of the Brethren, 300 W. Orange St.

The Glee Club, the oldest student organization on campus, is composed of singers from all colleges and schools on the University Park campus. They have performed across the United States and at state and divisional conventions of NAfME (National Music Educators) and the ACDA (American Choral Directors Association). They are under the direction of Christopher Kiver.

The Glee Club’s selections will range from Josquin des Pres and Mendelssohn to Gilbert and Sullivan. “Harriet Tubman,” a composition by Rollo Dilworth, captures the dramatic story of the woman often called the conductor of the Underground Railroad. This powerful setting of the poem by Eloise Greenfield incorporates musical themes from the spirituals “If I Got My Ticket” and “Go Down, Moses.”

Also performing will be the Hi-Los, a select group which performs everything from traditional glees and folk songs to pop songs and show tunes.

A cost sharing offering will be received to defray the cost of their transportation. To learn more, call the church at 717-626-2131.
