UNI Men's Glee Club spreads Christmas message

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL)-- There is nothing like Christmas music to get you in the spirit for the holidays.

If you listen very closely on the University of Northern Iowa's campus, there are a few men who want to spread their message.

"We believe in the power of music to lift up, inspire, and to help make the world a better place so that's what we do," said UNI senior David Hoobler.

The UNI Varsity Men's Glee Club has been around for 50 years now.

"It's really an honor to be here as a part of that, but its amazing that this group has been around for that long. Its has changed the lives of a lot of guys," said Hoobler.

Some of these men aren't music majors. In fact, the club began 50 years ago with non-music majors in mind.

"I'm a biology major and more of us actually aren't music majors, but we just all enjoy singing and it's something we do every week and feel passionate about," said UNI junior Austin Foster.

The UNI Varsity Men's Glee Club has their Christmas variety show starting Friday and going throughout the weekend.

"It's a lot of fun. It will put everyone in a great mood. It's time to make music," said Glee Club Conductor Dr. John Len Wiles.
