The Glendon Musical Ensemble is a group of dedicated amateur singers and instrumentalists drawn from Glendon College's community of students, staff, professors, alumni and friends. The GME was formed in 1999 on the initiative of students of Glendon College. It seeks to foster and encourage the study of music, while at the same time educating members of the community about the timeless beauty of some of the world's most important musical heritage. The Ensemble consists of vocal and instrumental sections, the latter featuring a blend of modern and period instruments. It brings together Glendon students, faculty, alumni and friends who all share a passion for music. Concerts and performances are made possible thanks to the patronage of Office of Student Services, Artistic and Cultural Affairs.
Love of music is what unites GME members. Each year the Ensemble produces up to three concerts, each conceived around themes likely to mobilize and focus member energies and generate audience enthusiasm.
Each program takes into account available instrumental and vocal talent. The GME often makes its own arrangements to accommodate various instrumental formations and to involve every member as much as possible. Though everyone takes this endeavor seriously, all are also interested in having fun-a most important aspect of music making.
