The Georgia Tech Glee Club is the oldest student organization on the Georgia Tech campus, the oldest Glee Club in the South, and one of the oldest such groups in the country. Founded in 1906, it has a rich tradition of singing that includes numerous national and international tours, as well as radio broadcasts and recordings. It was one of the first college organizations to record its fight song, making Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech one of the most famous college fight songs in the country. The group has appeared twice on the Ed Sullivan show and has entertained audiences around the world.
Featuring a “healthily irreverent” blend of music, drama, and vocal/visual performance antics, the Georgia Tech Glee Club sings entirely original arrangements of unaccompanied music, utilizing vocal percussion, movement, and technology. For two years, the Glee Club served as Ensemble-in-Residence in Honolulu at the 2006 and 2007 Hawaii International Conference on Arts & Humanities. In 2006, the Glee Club released its first studio CD recording of all original arrangements and compositions. In 2008, the ensemble made a successful solo debut appearance in New York City’s Carnegie Hall and completed a successful ten-day concert tour of England, Scotland and Wales, garnering rave reviews for their performances. In March, 2009, the Glee Club performed at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, and was featured in an a cappella festival at The George Washington University.
