The 1936 Virginia Glee Club Concert at Barnard College was conducted by Harry Rogers Pratt as part of the New York City Tour (1936). The tour was the main activity of the Glee Club 1935-1936 season, billed as the 50th anniversary season based on a chronology that dated the Glee Club's existence to 1886 rather than 1871.

The concert was held in Barnard Hall at Barnard College on February 27, 1936 and featured the Barnard College Glee Club under the direction of Professor Lowell P. Beveridge.
