Welcome to the website for the University Glee Club of New York City.

Founded in 1894, the University Glee Club of New York City is an all-male singing group established to encourage male voice singing of the highest excellence. Its 150 active singing members span recent college graduates and men who have sung with the UGC for over fifty years. Over 120 years, its roster has included thousands of men from hundreds of universities and colleges, all possessing the desire to sing, learned or fostered during their undergraduate years. The UGC performs two major concerts each season and its repertoire covers a wide range of music including classical works, Broadway musicals, sea chanteys, spirituals and traditional college songs.
