The 1935 Annual Concert of the Virginia Glee Club was directed by Harry Rogers Pratt as part of the Glee Club 1934-1935 season. The concert, held February 26, 1935 in Old Cabell Hall, included choral, solo, and quartet performances, as well as a piano duet and selections from a quartet of Glee Club alumni. The cover of the program advertised the upcoming 50th anniversary of the group (counting from 1886) and announced that the February 1936 concert would feature 50th anniversary repertory.

Alumni Advisory Board[edit | edit source]

The program includes a listing of an alumni advisory board for the Glee Club. This program is the only mention of the board, but given the focus of the program on the upcoming 50th anniversary, the board's focus was apparently in helping to prepare for the anniversary.
