T-Tones Recordings from 1968

Joe Darrah - May 31, 2019

May 31st, 2019. A blast from the past, go back in time with these recordings of the T-Tones from 1968! The T-Tones were a close-harmony singing group that began in 1952 originally as an octet that extended out from the Schools Glee Club.

The group received their name after spending a large portion of their time performing in the Tea House. Beginning in 1957, the T-Tones began playing at Glee Club Concerts as special guests. 

For more information about the group, listen to an oral history intreview of the T-Tones with former members and alumnae Patricia “Patsie” McCandless ’69 and Sharon Latchaw Hirsh '70.

The group consisted of 15 students until they became completely independent of the Glee Club and admission was reduced to 11. The group was also noted for writing and recording an album of their own work in New York City on November  6th and 7th, of 1967.
