The Pitt Men’s Glee Club, a collegiate male choir from the University of Pittsburgh, will be performing at Saint Mary’s Parish on Friday, March 10th at 7:30PM. The concert is free and open to the public. A light reception will follow the performance.

The concert at St. Mary’s in Holliston is part of the Glee Club’s 2017 domestic tour, which will feature several locations in the Northeast.  In addition to the Boston area concert, the Glee Club will hold concerts in Philadelphia, New York and Connecticut, including a performance at St. Patrick’s Cathedral Concert Series in New York City. They are one of sixteen choirs selected annually for this event from around the world.

The Pitt Men’s Glee Club was founded in 1890 by John L. High and is the oldest nonathletic extracurricular group at the University of Pittsburgh. They perform a wide variety of repertoire, including jazz, contemporaries, classical, barbershop, folk, and spirituals. They are currently under the direction of Richard Teaster, who has been the music director for the past seventeen years, and who also teaches at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon.

The Glee Club has become known nationally and internationally through their performances in the United States as well as in France, the Netherlands, Italy and Belgium.  They are one of four choirs, and the only one from the U.S., to be invited to perform in Belgium in October 2017 at a WWI Memorial Event commemorating the 100th anniversary of the battles that occurred in Flanders Fields
