We are the boys from old Florida…
the oldest performing choral organization at the University of Florida

 

“Four Score and Five”
UF’s Oldest Performing Ensemble Launches 85th Concert Season

The University of Florida Men's Glee Club will highlight the beginning of its 85th year with two concerts, one in the University Auditorium and one in Lake City, Florida with their colleagues in song, The Collegians, the men's glee club of Florida State University.

'We are the boys from old Florida!' that you have heard singing at concerts, football games, and other University of Florida special events. The University of Florida's men's close harmony singing has represented in song the uplifted heart, soul and spirit of the Florida Gators since the Glee Club was first established in1924.

At 'four score and five,' the Men's Glee Club is the oldest performing ensemble at the University of Florida and one of the oldest in the United States. From spirituals to fight songs, barbershop to bebop, the UF Men's Glee Club has sung it all during its 85 years of entertaining audiences all over the United States.

The Men's Glee Club performs music from the traditional glee club repertoire, as well as a broad spectrum of works from light classical to popular styles, and offers several performances throughout the academic year.
Hearing men sing in harmony is a rare treat. Hearing old favorites'with real melodies, lyrics you can understand and in close harmony--is about as close to musical heaven as you can get, they believe.

Comprised of students from across the UF campus, the Men's Glee Club is open to all male students without audition. All that is required is a love of music and the willingness to share our joy of music with fellow students and others by preparing to perform in concert several times each semester.
