The Animals are Comin’

The Animals are Comin'

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Eugene Gleemen’s 90th Season! The group was formed on January 14, 1926 and rehearsals begin the next Tuesday making the Gleemen one of Eugene’s first community arts groups and one of the oldest men’s choirs on the west coast.

We are proud to be still going strong. In fact, in the last few years we have picked up the pace a bit. We have attracted several younger members, received Oregon Cultural Trust funding to purchase a substantial number of new arrangements for our library, now offer free holiday performances to retirement centers and nursing homes, and have started a series of impromptu concerts at local pubs in the summertime.

We invite you to share in the excitement by attending our major concerts this season:

  • The Animals are Comin’ Sunday, November 22 at 3:00 at the Unitarian Church
  • Annual Sweetheart’s Ball, Saturday, February 13, 6:00 at the Eugene Hilton
  • American Spirituals, Sunday, May 22 at 3:00 at the Unitarian Church

Of course, if you feel like singing come on down and join us on Tuesday nights at the First Christian Church! It’s a welcoming environment and singing provides so many benefits to singers and audience alike.

For the Sheer Joy of Singing,

Dr. John Jantzi , Music Director

Jonathan Brandt , President
