I was in a professional choir years ago and while we didn't perform glees to the public we often did them informally. Great fun. I must say I thought they started in the US - didn't realise that the settlers took it with them from England.
I haven't watched the show but after seeing ads in the magazines and reading this article I think I will give it a shot. I love hearing the unsynthesized voices in harmony. Looking forward to watching an episode. I haven't carried a tune in years. Probably can't but I haven't tried since moving to Belize.
