Notre Dame Glee Club to perform at St. Alphonsus Church in Zionsville on March 13

Under the direction of Daniel C. Stowe, the University of Notre Dame Glee Club will perform a concert at St. Alphonsus Liguori Church in Zionsville, in the Lafayette Diocese, at 2 p.m. on March 13.

The Glee Club, one of the of the most renowned all-male choruses in the United States, will feature a program of a cappella works that cover a broad range of music from medieval works to contemporary compositions for male chorus. The group will be stopping in Zionsville as part of their 2016 Centennial Spring Tour.

The program delivered in each performance is always filled with variety that highlights the Glee Club’s scholasticism, musicianship, and dynamic control as an ensemble. “We want our audiences to receive an educational experience as well,” says Stowe.

The first half of the program features music from the Renaissance, Classical and Romantic eras. The musical set will include sacred contemporary pieces, including Franz Biebl’s “Ave Maria” for double men’s chorus—a signature piece of the Glee Club. The program continues with an exciting second half of sea shanties, folk songs, barbershop tunes and African-American spirituals.”
