Thank you SO MUCH for your continued support!
In just two weeks our campaign has been able to double our goal, and we are now at 70% of our adjusted goal! We couldn’t have gotten this far so quickly without your support. We still have over 6 weeks left in this campaign and we will continue to push hard to spread the word on this campaign.
Our true goal is to make this trip as affordable as possible for current members. Several members of the Glee Club have reached out to officers letting us know that the cost of the trip is the number one reason for members not being able to go on this trip. As this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, we would like it to be possible for all members to go. If you haven’t donated yet, please consider helping us reach our goal. We hope that with your continued support and the support of others we will make this a reality!
Jake Clarin, a junior, Neuroscience major, and our current baritone section leader, has this to say on his experience in the Glee Club:
“I didn’t sing before I joined Glee Club. I played the saxophone, guitar and piano. The voice is an instrument too, and everyone has their own distinct vocal aesthetic. In a choir, though, you’ve got to have one coherent sound. And that is what is special about this group. We spend so much time learning vocal technique and working on nuances to perfect a piece.
“Going on tour is the best way to share our commitment with as many people as possible outside of Pittsburgh. This is a big opportunity; I never would have dreamed, in a million years, that I would be going to Belgium to sing in a men’s chorale. I’m incredibly excited to perform with my friends!”
Jake Clarin, Baritone Section Leader
Thank you again – we will check in next week with another update on our progress!
