The Glass Menagerie is a 50-voice community chorus based in Greenwich Village. 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.
Join our Chorus!
Come make music on Thursday evenings with a joyful, hardworking chorus of 50 singers from all walks of life and levels of experience. We have openings in all sections & invite qualified singers to join us for our 2018–2019 concert season.
Auditions: Wednesday evening, August 29 and Thursday evening, September 6, 2018, at LREI (Little Red School House/Elizabeth Irwin High School) 272 Sixth Avenue at Bleecker Street, New York, NY 10012
The Upcoming 2018–2019 Season
We are looking forward to performing in two exciting events this fall.
The Mile-Long Opera: a biography of 7 o'clock
For five consecutive nights in October (3–7), 1,000 singers from across New York City, including members of The Glass Menagerie, will come together on the High Line for the first-ever performances of The Mile-Long Opera: a biography of 7 o’clock. Audience members will be active participants in this ambitious, collective, free choral work.
As you walk along the park, you will be able to move in and out of groups of singers, immersing yourself in hundreds of stories, inspired by the accounts of a wide range of New Yorkers, about life in our rapidly changing city.
7 o'clock means something different for everyone. What will it mean to you?
