DARTMOUTH COLLEGE GLEE CLUB
The Dartmouth College Glee Club is a group of 40+ serious choral singers, led by Louis Burkot since 1981. Its ever increasing repertory spans four centuries, with a distinguished performance history including many of the masterworks of choral-orchestral literature, fully staged Gilbert and Sullivan operettas with all-student casts, large and small a cappella works and the cherished songs of Dartmouth College. Performances have included the Requiem of Gabriel Fauré performed with orchestra, Six Madrigali of Morten Lauridsen, and a fully staged and choreographed performance of Purcell’s masterpiece, Dido and Aeneas performed with the Arcadia Players, a baroque period instrument orchestra. In addition, the Glee Club regularly tours each spring break.
Louis Burkot has been the director of the Dartmouth Glee Club since 1981. He was the recipient of the Distinguished Lecturer award at Dartmouth in the spring of 2000 for his work in vocal instruction in the Department of Music. As an operatic conductor, Richard Dyer of the Boston Globe has praised his work as “first-rate, capable, and stylish” and Opera News has noted his conducting “sparkles with verve and sensitivity to the needs of singers.” Under Burkot’s tutelage many Dartmouth students have continued their musical studies at New England Conservatory, Boston University, Indiana University, Cincinnati Conservatory, and others. His conducting studies included the Yale School of Music, the Aspen Music Festival, and the Houston Grand Opera. In addition, he gives master classes in vocal repertoire at music schools and conservatories throughout the United States.
