100 Years of the Morehouse Glee Club!
You can always tell a Morehouse man! Determined. Authentic. Respected.
That also applies to men of the Morehouse College Glee Club, established in 1911, they are simply amazing! The historically black, all-male choir has performed just about everywhere and for just about everyone. From the Olympics, the Super Bowl, and even the funeral of slain civil rights leader, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. In short, this choir has shared their talent with the world for 100 years. Although it was the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Ga that gave them a resurgence of popularity.
Founded in 1911 from an established singing tradition at Morehouse, the founding director Kemper Harreld went on to direct the Glee Club and head the Morehouse music department for 42 years. Under his direction, the Glee Club and Quartet performed at least three times for President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Today the Glee Club performs globally before world leaders and prestigious events. They have released more albums than Rihanna and sell out concerts like the rock stars they are! Congratulations on the first 100 years!
