Statue of Liberty Bell Soirée – Encore!
June 2, 2018
University Glee Club and Orpheus Club Members and their guests are cordially invited to the Second Annual Statue of Liberty Bell Soirée on Saturday June 16th. The UGC looks forward to reuniting with our brothers-in-song, The Orpheus Club of Philadelphia, for a spirited night of joint and small group singing, including hearing from each club’s quartets and small groups such as The Crickets, The Ten and from The Orpheus Club, the Rat Pack, Interchangeables and Bacchus Boys. As with last year’s event, we will join together in song from the tables during dinner, for many a shared group favorite, including accompanied numbers.
The evening begins at 6pm at The Players in Gramercy (16 Gramercy Park South, New York, NY 10003) for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by dinner and entertainment around 7pm. Dates are encouraged! Dress code is blazers / sports coat and club tie for gentlemen, cocktail attire for dates. The cost of the evening is $95 per head which includes dinner and an open bar. Tickets may be purchased at http://www.ugcofnyc.org/tickets
A note about the venue: The Players is a private social club founded in 1888 when Edwin Booth, the greatest American actor of his time, purchased a Gothic Revival-style mansion facing Gramercy Park and commissioned architect Stanford White to transform it into a certain club “for the promotion of social intercourse between the representative members of the dramatic profession and the kindred professions of literature, painting, sculpture and music, and the patrons of the arts.” More information can be found here: http://www.theplayersnyc.org/

Last year’s event was great fun, so join us at The Players on June 16th!
