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 all who made our 2016 annual spring concert on May 7, 2016 — The Bard Sings: Shakespeare through the ages — such a pleasure and success. We sang Shakespeare’s timeless poetry in choral settings old and new, including the premiere of our latest commission, a setting of Sonnet 65 by New York composer Julie Dolphin. The concert also featured music by Thomas Morley, Amy Beach, Ralph Vaughan Williams, George Shearing, and Matthew Harris, and dramatic readings from Shakespeare’s plays performed by young artists from LREI. Our venue was the Church of St. Joseph in Greenwich Village. We wish you a happy summer and look forward to seeing you and singing for you in December!

We performed on March 4, 2015, in THE EVENTS, an innovative theater production by Scottish playwright David Greig at New York Theatre Workshop — and the New York Times was there! Check out the New York Times’ interview with our Artistic Director Susan Glass.
