We're glad you're interested in Ohio University's first men's glee club!
SMO is an all-male ensemble that performs choral pieces, both traditional and experimental. From melodic pieces like "Nearer My God to Thee," to fun pieces like "The Boys from O-H-I-O.
The Singing Men of Ohio is currently under the direction of Dr. Bradley Naylor. This is currently Dr. Naylor's first year as director.
Now that you have some background information, here's how you get in!
SMO is registered as a class and meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11:50 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. The class can count as one credit hour towards your class schedule. Since SMO is a registered class, you will be expected to attend all rehearsals, so don't ditch your brothers!
At the beginning of the semester, you will audition into the group and be assigned a vocal part. It's a simple process, so just be yourself! The ensemble is made up of four parts: Tenor 1, Tenor 2, Baritone, and Bass. Parts will be assigned to fit your range and where your range is needed in the group.
