P.S. Happy Holidays

Bruce Trinkley, Director
recorded – 1994

P.S. Happy Holidays, the first CD under director Bruce Trinkley is an homage to the Christmas vinyls of yore. By sampling concerts from over twenty years, the album contains some of the Penn State Glee Club’s favorites, special arrangements, and new discoveries. Spurred on by Ken Plattner ’79, who thought the group was long overdue for another studio recording, P.S. Happy Holidays shares a preserves some of the glorious holiday music for men’s voices. So, in October of 1994, the Club embarked on a series of late night recording sessions in Esber hall. The wonderful results are immortalized in what became P.S. Happy Holidays!
