Dear Members, Supporters and Friends,

It hardly seems a year ago that we presented our first live concert since Covid. During that time, like other chorales, we rehearsed and recorded concerts remotely. It proved to be a lot of effort, most especially for our conductor Andrea Lodge, and her musician husband Jay Source, who worked tirelessly to produce two seasons of exceptional music that were posted on our website.

After the success of Screen Gems, which featured the scores of many beloved films, we decided to turn our attention to just one composer, the late Burt Bacharach, a winner of six Grammys, three Academy Awards and a Grammy. Many of his best-known songs were written with the lyricist Hal David: Close to You, Do You Know the Way to San Jose, I Say a Little Prayer and Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, among them. Bacharach’s career ran five decades, and his songs were recorded by over 1,000 artists.

This year’s Spring Concert will be held on Thursday, June 13 @ 7:30 PM at Church of the Good Shepherd, on East 31st Street, between Second and Third Avenues. There is a suggested donation of $20 at the door.  Like other performing non-profits, we suffered greatly during Covid and have yet to fully recover.  We welcome all donations to help defray the cost of this concert. Checks may be sent to the Down Town Glee Club, PO Box 1494, Bowling Green Station, NY 10274.

For those who have enjoyed our music over the years, your support has always been appreciated. Those who are new to us; we truly welcome your participation. Please help us celebrate the conclusion of the 2023-2024 season by joining us for some light refreshments immediately following the performance.
