Music in Mid-Ohio: OSU Men's Glee Club

When you need something done, call the Marines.

When you want to hear singing, call The Ohio State Univeristy Men's Glee Club.

As part of Classical 101's new online version of our Music in Mid-Ohio series, here's a memorable performace to brighten your day.  

When the new Ohio Union opened a few years ago there were days of dignitaries, dinners and celebration. In what seemed like a lull, the best party of all commenced.

It was Valentine's Day and the gentlemen of the OSU Men’s Glee Club sang, danced and serenaded in the new building, to the delight–and consternation–of passersby.

No snappy red jackets in this clip. But there’s certainly plenty of joy and spontaneity, no matter the wardrobe.

I’d say delight is the important sentiment now, when we are all shut in and washing our hands.

The Marines are busy. The OSU Men’s Glee Club is too, singing for us--in good times and bad.
