Oriel students form gleeful club

first_imgStudents at Oriel are setting up their own glee club inspired by the popular TV show Glee.The proposal was presented as a motion to a JCR meeting originally as a bit of a joke. However, Ben Bluemel, one of the proposers said, “The response to the idea has been incredible.”Bluemel hopes the club will help bring members of the college together, and pointed out there were all sorts of students involved, including sportspeople and non-sportspeople, in the same spirit as the show.An ex-member of the very successful Oxford a capella group Out of the Blue will be helping them put together and practice their first number. They will be performing a mash-up of With or Without You and Don’t Stop Believing at their next JCR meeting.“There’s a lot of pressure,” commented Bluemel. They hope the popularity of the club will inspire other colleges to set up groups for them to rival or, at least, to crew date.last_img read more
