  Glee Club Endowment (#253008)

How Your Gift Is Used

Gifts are essential for preserving and expanding our artistic, educational, and outreach activities, including:

Tours - The Glee Club tours annually, making its members highly effective musical ambassadors for Cornell University. Along with regular domestic tours, they have recently visited the United Kingdom (2012), China (2008), Brazil (2004), and Venezuela (2001).

New Music - The Glee Club is dedicated to expanding the repertoire of men's choral music. Established in 2005, the Thomas A. Sokol Commissioning Endowment helps fund the annual commissioning of a new work premiered by the Glee Club each fall.

Education and Outreach - The Glee Club sponsors an annual workshop, New York Young Men Singing, designed for male singers in high school. The workshop fosters the participants' continued interest in singing and gives them important exposure to the Glee Club and Cornell

Recordings - The Glee Club's recordings allow it to reach wider audiences while preserving its heritage of musical excellence. The Glee Club continues to record annually and released its most recent album, Last Letter Home, in 2011.
