New Website Highlights Musical Groups’ Summer European Tours

Music lovers vacationing or living in Europe this summer won’t have to wait to come back to campus for some Yale-made music; they can just drop by one of the many concerts being presented by Yale groups touring the region.

Each summer, musical groups from Yale travel the world to share their passion for music. A new website, “Yale Music in Europe, Summer 2011,” tracks the whereabouts of eight of these troupes: Yale Schola Cantorum, Redhot & Blue, Yale Glee Club, Whim ‘n Rhythm, Yale Alumni Chorus, Whiffenpoofs, The Spizziwinks(?) and Yale Baroque Ensemble.

The groups’ tours will take them to concert halls across the continent.

Of particular note this summer is the Yale Glee Club’s three-week journey in celebration of their 150th anniversary. Retracing the route of their first international tour of more than 80 years ago, the Glee Club will begin in Uppsala, Sweden, and sing their way through Northern and Central Europe until they reach their final destination — Istanbul.

The “Yale Music in Europe” website — part of the “Yale and the World” website sponsored by the Office of International Affairs (world.yale.edu) — highlights the signature events in Europe from May through July, and provides ticketing information.
