The Yale Glee Club is a mixed chorus of men and women, consisting of students of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.

The Glee Club performs several concerts each year in New Haven and goes on tour each January. According to music critic Zachary Woolfe of the New York Times, it is "one of the best collegiate singing ensembles, and one of the most adventurous." Its members are "world famous for their harmonic precision" per New York Times music critic Robert Sherman.

Famous quotes containing the words club, yale and/or glee:

    In another year I’ll have enough money saved. Then I’m gonna go back to my hometown in Oregon and I’m gonna build a house for my mother and myself. And join the country club and take up golf. And I’ll meet the proper man with the proper position. And I’ll make a proper wife who can run a proper home and raise proper children. And I’ll be happy, because when you’re proper, you’re safe.
    Daniel Taradash (b. 1913)

    And there was that wholesale libel on a Yale prom. If all the girls attending it were laid end to end, Mrs. Parker said, she wouldn’t be at all surprised.
    Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)

    Do not forget! For those green times now laugh
    In glee with sport and thought and lily dance;
    And fate in vanity now leaps to chaff
    Me smiling at her winking circumstance.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
