Last year was incredibly fun and generated a lot of interest in the Gleemen from our local community.  Make sure you wave and say “Hi” if you are watching the parade – we love your pictures too – feel free to upload them to Facebook and tag us!

O Say Can You See … The Gleemen Perform Friday Night?

 

 

National Anthem

 

Friday night is the last opportunity to see the Eugene Gleemen perform the National Anthem this year – so head on out to PK Park to cheer both the Gleemen and your favorite Eugene Emeralds.

Next to Christmas caroling, the honor of performing the National Anthem in front the large, appreciative audience at PK Park is something we cherish and truly embodies for us, “The Sheer JOY of Singing!”

Fun at the Lane County Fair

Lane County Fair - 2012If it’s late July in Eugene it means it’s time for the Lane County Fair, and your next chance to see the Eugene Gleemen perform.  This year we will be performing a subset of our favorite songs from our Spring Concert – we really believe in putting the “Glee” back into Gleemen!

If you missed our Spring Concert this is your opportunity for a free encore performance of such Glee classics as “Mighty Men of Song”, “Vive L’Amour”, “We’re the Men”, “Brothers Sing On” and one of our all-time favorites, “The Whiffenpoof Song” – made famous by the Yale Whiffenpoofs and first performed by the Eugene Gleemen 40 years ago in 1974.Jammin' at the Fair - 2012

We hope to see you at the Fair – We are performing at 11:00 AM on Thursday the 24th in the Wheeler Pavillion, and of course, there should be plenty of free ice cream!

Play Ball!

The Eugene Gleemen return to PK Park this Friday (July 11th) to sing the National Anthem at Eugene Emeralds home game against the Boise Hawks.  Our arrangement of The Star Spangled Banner was created by none other than our current Musical Director, Dr. John Jantzi.  We hope to see you there – Go Ems!

While most choirs are winding down for the summer, the Eugene Gleemen are donning those familiar lemon polo shorts and getting ready for the fun part of the year!  We have a number of summer activities planned this year, including:

  • Performances of the National Anthem at PK Park for the Eugene Emeralds on July 11, July 25, and August 1.  As usual, games start at 7:05 PM so be early to catch our very own rendition of the anthem.
  • An encore performance of our Spring Concert (“Let the Men Sing”) at the Lane County Fair on July 24 at 11:00 AM in the Wheeler Pavilion
  • A rendition of our ever expanding repertoire of Glee songs at Hop Valley in Eugene on July 29 – time TBD
  • A float in the Eugene Celebration Parade on August 23.  Last year was the first time we participated for many years and it was a blast!

We hope you all have a long and enjoyable summer this year and have the opportunity to catch one of our performances.
