Tours

The Glee Club has represented Pomona College throughout the United States for over 100 years; since 1999, it has broadened its outreach to include international as well as Glee 2016 St. Peter's Romedomestic destinations. One of the goals of these concert tours is to bring a part of the College to our alumni, family, friends, and prospective students throughout the country and the world; equally important, however, is the opportunity to connect with members of the local community. We are especially cognizant of how musical ensembles can serve an ambassadorial role, reinforcing the shared humanity of peoples from around the world through the shared experience of music. Similarly, we understand how the gift of music can have a powerful impact on the lives of others; for this reason, we have made a special commitment to senior citizens, who are so often unable to get out an experience the joy that live music can bring.

We hope you will enjoy seeing where we have traveled (since 1999).
