New York Young Men Sing

NYYMS will be held on Saturday, February 27th 2016, beginning at 10am at Cornell University with a concert in Sage Chapel at 4:30pm

New York Young Men Sing is an annual event hosted by the Cornell University Glee Club, the men’s choir at Cornell. Knowing that it can sometimes be difficult to be a male singer in high school, we host this event to encourage male students to continue singing not only through high school, but throughout their collegiate and adult lives. The students will arrive at Cornell University in the morning and spend the beginning of the day rehearsing with the Glee Club. After lunch, the students will be taught a song by The Hangovers, the a cappella subset of the Glee Club and then rehearse more with the full Glee Club. The afternoon will culminate with a concert in Sage Chapel showcasing the repertoire learned that day. Registration costs $30. If there are financial concerns, please contact us as scholarships are available.

“As a member of a high school men’s chorus, it was a really great opportunity to see firsthand that there are opportunities to pursue men’s choral singing in college.  Now that I’m in the Cornell Glee Club and on the other side of the event, I fully appreciate just how much participating in New York Young Men Sing opened my eyes to the world of men’s choral singing. I’m glad that we give back in such a manner, it’s important to the longevity of men’s singing everywhere.”-Adam Beckwith ‘14
