Vuvuzelas @ Harvard

On Friday November 19th, the members of the Yale Glee Club traveled to Cambridge, MA for our annual joint concert with our counterparts from Harvard. The concert is always the day before the big Yale-Harvard football game ("The Game"), so rivalry runs high. During the lead-up to the 2010 Game, there had been much ado about the possibility that both Yale and Harvard fans would be armed with vuvuzelas during the contest (the powerful plastic horns were eventually banned). During our football medley, we found a way to get in on the fun in B-flat:

More photo fun from the Harvard Concert:

"The saddest tale we have to tell" — YGCers mourning the fact that we have to graduate.

"With Crimson in Triumph Flashing" — Noting that the Harvard Glee Club is all-male, the women of the Yale Glee Club don tailcoats when Harvard's fight song comes up during the Football Medley.
