Virginia Glee Club Wiki

The Madrigal Group was an early women's chorus at the University of Virginia. The group was formed in the fall of 1943 "in response to the demand for a chorus which would be open to women students in all the schools of the University."[1] The group collaborated many times with the Glee Club during the World War II years, and made a brief reappearance in the late 1950s before going on permanent hiatus.
