The Ohio State University Men's Glee Club is a brotherhood that commits itself to excellence through artistry, achievement in academics, and outreach to the community. The Men’s Glee Club has been sharing music with the OSU campus, community and around the world since 1875. They are active throughout the year with fall tailgating before football games, multiple concerts on and off campus and frequent trips both within the US and abroad.
Name: Tim Sarsany
Hometown: Warren, Ohio (Champion High School)
Occupation: Artistic Director of the Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus, freelance and published composer and arranger.
Years in MGC: 1986 – 1999, 2007– 2010 (DMA in conducting 2010, MM in choral conducting 1999, BM in theory/composition in 1994).
It was my initial involvement in MGC that sparked my interest in choral music as a profession. I began writing transcriptions and arranging songs as an undergraduate, and through the encouragement of then conductor, Jim Gallagher, arranged more extensively and even began writing original works. I was also a member of the 1990 Choir of the World group, a memory that I will always cherish.
Returning to OSU for my doctoral degree, singing under Dr. Robert Ward, I was further inspired to write and arrange, thanks to Dr. Ward’s penchant for new commissions for male chorus. I felt I continued to strive and grow as a musician while under the direction of Dr. Ward, and I am very grateful to him for his instruction, support and encouragement.
I firmly believe that my time in OSUMGC showed me a world of music that, if it were not for the group, I would never have known. The amazing music we made, musical direction I received, not to mention the life-long friends and colleagues I made in it throughout my tenure, has made my life much richer and I am eternally grateful for its impact on my life over the last 25 years.
Did you know... Over half of the OSU Men's Glee Club are NOT Music majors?
