The Glee Club took full advantage of the new winter schedule, this year traveling to Philadelphia and New Jersey. In Philadelphia, we were hosted by the merry men of the Penn Glee Club, who are celebrating their own 150th birthday this year. (Out of respect, we did not point out that we predated theirs by three whole years.) Our concert, held in Ticknor Lounge on the UPenn campus, was a raucous, standing room-only affair.
In New Jersey, we likewise were invited to participate in a birthday celebration. The concert series West Side Presbyterian Church in Ridgewood, New Jersey, was celebrating 35 wonderful years of beautiful music and invited the Glee Club to participate. It was also the home church of our own Scott Ahlborn ’12, which made the performance that much more meaningful. It was certainly a tour to remember!
Watch the Ridgewood, NJ performance here. (scroll down through recorded services to find “West Side Concert Series: Harvard Glee Club, Sat. 1/21/2012”)
