On December 27th, the Harvard Glee Club (HGC) will begin its 2016-2017 New Year’s Tour of East Asia with a flight from San Francisco to Taipei. The tour, which comprises stops in Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan, will be the first extended international tour for the Glee Club in over a decade, and we couldn’t be more excited to travel to countries with such rich choral traditions. The tour team has been diligently working on this tour for the past year and a half, keeping in mind our goals of achieving excellence in performance, promoting rich cultural exchange, and advancing the tradition of choral music. It is our hope that over the course of this tour, the HGC members will share, with each other and with the countries we are visiting, connections and lessons which can only be gained by first-hand experience.
