Since 1906, the Occidental Glee Club has played a central role in the life of the College, drawing musicians of the highest caliber and giving voice to our college spirit.
The Occidental College Glee Club is a high caliber choral ensemble, performing a wide variety of music from classical to contemporary. The Glee Club’s reputation for excellence has carried the banners of Occidental College far into the musical world, through national and international tours and recordings. The Occidental Glee Club is dedicated to superb music making and to fostering ties that unite generations of singers.
The Glee Club dates back over 100 years and each new group of singers adds to the group's history and legacy. Much has changed since the Glee Club was first established, but it has always been a group devoted to the study and performance of advanced choral repertoire, with the more recent addition of world and pop music. In order to achieve this exceptional level of quality, members in the group commit a considerable amount of time to the group. One hour of rehearsal per week for women and men separately, 3.5 hours combined rehearsal per week, as well as performances, traveling, and competitions means that Glee Club meets far more regularly than a 4-unit class.
That being said, the Glee Community is an extremely welcoming, charismatic, and caring group. Our members play an active role in many organizations and offices on campus, and they represent majors from History to Physics and everything in between. Additionally, the Glee Club has come to be a significant presence on Oxy's campus and performs at a wide variety of campus events, as well as those around the community.
