The Glass Menagerie is a 60 voice community chorus based in Greenwich Village, New York City. We've been making music together since 1984. We rehearse on Thursday evenings during the academic year at LREI (Little Red School House/Elisabeth Irwin High School), 272 Sixth Avenue at Bleecker Street, New York, NY 10014. Our regularly scheduled concerts take place in December and May.

One Land, Many Voices!
The American musical canon is filled with diverse voices. Generations of people have reached our shores, bringing their music with them. Join us as we celebrate the wealth of voices that have contributed to the American experience — composers such as Aaron Copland, William Billings, Eric Whitacre, and Ysaye M. Barnwell; traditional songs from Jewish and African-American roots; and American Standards by some of our most famous immigrants.
The Glass Menagerie Chorus 2017 Concert Series is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
