The Mendelssohn Glee Club of New York City was founded in 1866. Named for composer Felix Mendelssohn, the Club has offered for the enjoyment of our members and friends at least two concerts in every year of our existence. The nonprofit organization is the oldest menís chorus in the country and the second oldest independent musical organization (after the New York Philharmonic).

About Felix Mendelssohn
Felix Mendelssohn was born on February 3, 1809, in Hamburg, Germany.
His best-known works include A Midsummer Night's Dream
(with the famous "Wedding March"); his four symphonies (especially
the "Italian" and the "Scottish"); a violin concerto; piano pieces
entitled Songs Without Words; and the oratorio Elias (a
large-scale work for chorus, orchestra, and soloists).
We hope that our audiences have enjoyed our performances as much as we have enjoyed singing. Please keep in mind that the ability of the Club to continue depends on financial support from friends like you. Donations.
