Glee Club Singing the Alma Mater and the Victory March

This past October, more than 500 former members of the Notre Dame Glee Club returned to campus to celebrate their 100th Anniversary.  We produced a story about the event.

One of the cool things included in this story is seeing and hearing more than 500 members of the Glee Club at the Morris Performing Arts Center singing the Alma Mater and Victory March.
This would be a great video to share with your donors.  Here’s the link:  http://1842stories.nd.edu/
