REVIEW: A Day of Glee

On January 7, 2012 at 4PM in the famous Hill Auditorium, many wonderful singers displayed their talents and filled the audience with joy. In this concert, high school students came together with the Women’s and Men’s Glee Clubs to get a preview of life at the University of Michigan and to show their talents to their older counterparts.

First, the mass men’s glee group performed. This was comprised of the high school boys and the Men’s Glee Club. They sang some very moving songs with great harmonies and Hill Auditorium provided a wonderful showcase of their amazing sound. Then the Men’s Glee Club performed some songs, which included a couple of dances and were very fun. During the Men’s Glee Club portion of the concert, The Friars (a sect of the Men’s Glee Club) performed some entertaining pieces that got the crowd going wild.

Next, the Women’s Glee Club joined forces with the high school girls visiting U of M and sang some songs that were both entertaining and beautiful. They had a distinctly different sound than the Men’s Glee Club, but both groups were full of talent and glee, of course. After performing with the high school visitors, the Women’s Glee Club took the stage to sing a few songs of their own. Some of the songs were in different languages, but it was just as easy to recognize the emotion of the pieces. A sect of the Women’s Glee Club performed as well and they were quirky and entertaining as well. Overall, it was interesting to see the differences and similarities between the Men’s and Women’s Glee Clubs.

Both the Men’s and Women’s Glee Clubs are performing abroad, which is a great representation for our school. The men are performing in China while the women are headed to South Africa. There will be amazing opportunities to display the talent of our school and I was glad to see such talented groups. Next time you hear about a Glee concert, go and support them because you really will be filled with joy upon hearing their amazing voices!
