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.
Love, War, and Remembrance
We present songs of soldiers gone to war, songs of loved ones longing for their safe return, songs that mourn those lost forever, songs of protest, and songs that cry for peace.
Our journey begins with “L’Homme Armé”; moves on to songs from the American Revolutionary and Civil wars; to compositions from World Wars I and II; and culminates in excerpts from Vaughn Williams’ “Dona Nobis Pacem.”
