ARCHIVE / GLEE CLUB WITH CRAFT BEER CHASER
2 CULTURES COLLIDE—By collision we mean it’s a good thing as in accidentally running into each other. Saturday, March 3--if you arrange your stars--you can catch a beer tour to three Tijuana breweries by bus and/or take in the Yale Glee Club performance in Downtown San Diego. Doing both may be a bit iffy, but here you go. You decide.
The well traveled Yale Glee Club performs Sat. nite, 7 pm at the First Presbyterian Church, 320 Date St., downtown. Led by musical director Jeff Douma, the 150-year-old undergraduate, mixed-chorus, is respected for singing a wide range of choral music from the 16th century motets to contemporary folk songs. Cost: A donation will be asked.
