The Glass Menagerie is a community chorus in Greenwich Village, New York City. We are a group of 70 singers, and we give two concerts a year, one in December and one in May. We rehearse during the school year on Thursday evenings.
Thanks to the many friends, family members and fans who shared in our joyous 2013-14 concerts. Happy summer to all!
The Nature of Things
Saturday, May 3rd, 2014, at 8 p.m.
Sun, rain, trees, flowers, and the changing of the seasons – all have inspired poets and composers to give expression to the full range of human emotions. Join us as we sing about the beauty of nature and the wonders of love, featuring selections from Dvořák’s Songs of Nature and Britten’s Flower Songs, as well as settings by Elgar, Barber, Schubert, Hensel, and Mendelssohn, and music by Pete Seeger.

2013 Winter Concert
For our annual Winter Concert on December 14, 2013 – our biggest event ever! – we:
- sang Johann Sebastian Bach’s monumental Magnificat in D Major and Robert DeCormier’s suite of Christmas spirituals, Shout for Joy;
- performed at a special, larger venue: Soho’s historic Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral, commonly known as Old St. Pat’s;
- were joined by five guest soloists and a 17-piece chamber orchestra; and
- undertook two important firsts to help pay for this costly event: we applied for our first-ever grant, and we launched our first-ever crowdfunding campaign. Both efforts, along with our regular annual fundraising, were resoundingly successful thanks to the time, expertise and money donated so generously by friends, family, fans and chorus volunteers!
