IMC Conference 2014
On behalf of the Rutgers University Glee Club and the Intercollegiate Men’s Choruses, we cordially invite you to attend the 2014 IMC Conference to be held March 6–8 at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The conference will feature performances by ten outstanding collegiate choruses, as well as several other performances from choruses in the community. The schedule of performances and interest sessions may be found here.
The Rutgers University Glee Club is pleased to announce that we will perform one of the monuments of the repertoire for men’s chorus - Igor Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex. The role of Oedipus will be sung by Vale Rideout, noted for his concert work and opera roles throughout the United States and abroad.
