Saturday, April 26, 2014
Eisenhower Auditorium, University Park
Tickets $12 and $4
Eisenhower Auditorium will resonate to the sounds of current and former Glee Club men raising the song at a special concert to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the Penn State Glee Club, Penn State's oldest student organization. The concert will feature a performance of Randall Thompson's majestic setting of "Testament of Freedom" accompanied by the Penn State Symphonic Wind Ensemble. Over four movements, Randall Thompson masterfully sets words penned by Thomas Jefferson. Current members of the Glee Club will also perform "When Music Sounds," composed by Joseph Gregorio especially for the anniversary celebrations, as well as "Saltarelle" by Camille Saint Saens and "Listen to a Jubilant Song" by Tim Sarsany. After the intermission, an alumni choir will perform four pieces, and the concert concludes with a massed choir of current and former Glee Clubbers. As well as traditional songs, there will be lots of Penn State songs as well. An event not to be missed, tickets can be purchased at 1-800-ARTS-TIX, or online at cpa.psu.edu, or at local box office locations. Tickets will also be available at the door.
