About the Glee Club

The Caltech Glee Club plays an important role in extracurricular life at Caltech.

The Glee Club welcomes all in the Caltech/JPL community.  There is no audition requirement, and anyone wishing to sing is encouraged to join. The Glee Club rehearses twice a week for a total of three hours, preparing music in a wide variety of styles and languages. Featured events include the annual December Holiday Concert, Winter Concert, and Spring Concert, as well as participation in the Pacific Southwest Intercollegiate Choral Association Festival.

In previous years, the group has toured western Canada, Utah, Colorado, and the East Coast.

Performances of major works have included a fully-staged production of Stravinsky's opera-oratorio Oedipus Rex in 1997 and Dominick Argento's The Revelation of St. John the Divine presented at the invitation of the 34th National Seminar of the Intercollegiate Men's Choruses in March 1990.

Performances have included Britten's Ceremony of Carols, Purcell's Come Ye Sons of Art, and a concert of works by Daniel Pinkham conducted by the composer, Bach's Magnificat and Cantata #4, Handel's Messiah, Poulenc's Gloria, Faure's Requiem, Charpentier's Midnight Mass for Christmas, Bloch's Sacred Service, and Orff's Carmina Burana.
