With some many controversial college happenings taking place across America, it’s nice to see a little positivity, like when the Yale Glee Club serenaded a Metro-North train last week.

According to NBC, it all started when train conductor Bob McDonough noticed the singing college folks on his train on their way back to New Haven. McDonough wanted to join in on the fun and told the group that he must conduct their gleeful singing. “Not only did I have ‘The Yale Glee Club’ riding my train into NYC on Friday, but later that night they were on my train back home to New Haven. I told them I was a conductor, so I must conduct… and somehow they bought it . Did I mention they go to YALE?” McDonough wrote on Facebook.

He posted a video of himself happily waving his hands in the air, as the gang sang “Carol of the Bells.” The Yale Glee Club apparently also sang for passengers on the platform as they waited for their trains.

Now, I have to say, it doesn’t look like McDonough knows the first thing about conducting a choir, however, those Bulldogs certainly know how to belt it out.

Watch the video below, and let us know what you think of the singing!


Do you think the Yale Glee Club spread some cheers?
