The Notre Dame Glee Club
Recognized as one of the finest all-male collegiate choral groups in the country, the University of Notre Dame Glee Club has a rich history of singing and brotherhood spanning nearly a hundred years from 1915. Evolving from its roots as a traditional glee club, the Notre Dame Glee Club has expanded its repertoire to include music ranging from renaissance polyphony to worldwide folk and spiritual tunes to barbershop to contemporary choral and popular music. Under the direction of Dan Stowe, the group performs regularly on Notre Dame's campus, throughout the United States, and around the world. We invite you to explore our site and learn more about us, past, present, and future. If you want to learn more or have questions regarding the Glee Club, contact president Paul Kearney.
Auditions for the upcoming academic year will be held in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center on Sunday, August 24th from 3 pm to 6 pm and on Monday, August 25th from 10 am to 10 pm.

Fall Tour 2013
This October, the Glee Club continued its tradition of a domestic Fall Tour, traveling to Michigan, Ontario, and New York.

We'd like to extend our thanks to those who helped plan our stops and who graciously hosted our members during our trip.

Spain Tour 2013
During the summer break of 2013, the Glee Club went on a three-week tour of Spain spanning over a dozen cities and towns and eight concerts. As part of this tour, members of the Glee Club walked the last 140 km of the Camino de Santiago, one of Europe's most famous and beloved pilgrimages. After a week of snow, sunburn, blisters, exhaustion, and above all camaraderie, the Glee Club arrived in Santiago de Compostela, the end point of the journey and a meeting place for the many travelers on the Way. We finished off our pilgrimage singing together at the Pilgrims' Mass celebrated in honor of the completion of the Camino.

Spring Tour 2014
In March, the Glee Club embarked on a week-long trip south in search of warmer weather. Starting with a concert with our brothers in song at Chicago Men's A Cappella at the University of Chicago's Rockefeller Chapel, we then flew to Florida for some sun, sand, singing, and brotherhood. Before we finally returned to the frozen north, we stopped by Alabama and make a brief detour to New Orleans to sightsee. We returned to South Bend tired and a little sunburned, but with great memories. Many thanks to those who hosted us and attended our concerts on this tour!
