Yale Glee Club 

The third biggest college team performing in New Orleans this week is the Yale Glee Club. The 80-member-strong chorale group has its own storied tradition. In fact, the Glee Club was formed in 1861, eight years before New Jersey schools Rutgers and Princeton faced each other in the first college football game (Rutgers won 6-4). By the 1920s, the club was considered one of the finest male chorale performing groups in the country, and Cole Porter was one of its early alums. The group has performed all over the world and tours the United States annually. It became co-ed one year after Yale first admitted women in 1969. This performance will feature works by Gabrielli, Rossini, Copeland and newer works by younger American composers like Caroline Mallonee and Jenni Brandon. The New Orleans Children's Chorus also will perform and will benefit from all concert proceeds. Tickets $10 general admission, $5 students/seniors. -- Will Coviello
