A BRIEF HISTORY
In 1911, Morehouse College, which was then Atlanta Baptist College, had a music professor named Georgia Starr. She served the College from 1903-1905 and again from 1908-1911. Mr. Kemper Harreld assumed directorship and officially founded the Glee Club when he joined the College’s music faculty in the fall of 1911. Mr. Harreld became director of the Glee Club and chairman of the Music Department. After faithfully serving for forty-two years, he retired in 1953. Mr. Harreld was responsible for initiating the Glee Club’s strong tradition of excellence and passing it on to its members.
Through its tradition the Glee Club has an impressive history and seeks to secure its future through even greater accomplishments. It is the mission of the Morehouse College Glee Club to maintain its standard of musical excellence.
The current members originate from all over the United States and other places around the world. While many are music majors, our singers come from majors in all divisions of The College. Some members take Glee Club as a course for credit, but many still sing as a labor of love and enjoy being ambassadors for Morehouse College.
