2016 Membership Drive -- Now open!:
While other US based organizations charge our
annual membership rates for just
one concert; we still firmly believe that the quality and the value we
create will increase membership, thus offsetting the increased cost and
eventually passing the savings to our loyal members. Visit our
membership page http://www.glacmichigan.com/member.htm for
options and on how to become a member including the online option
through our partnership with Sulekha.com
With one foot in our 30year heritage and our right foot forward into

musicians. Donations will be accepted online via the Donate button on
