Viral WATCH: Conductor Leads Impromptu Christmas Carol Performance on His NY Train
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? Thank you to Greg Suralik (class of '17) and Nolan Crawford, for recording and emailing your videos to me.

A New York train conductor became a choir conductor when the Yale Glee Club boarded his Connecticut-bound train and started to sing a Christmas carol.
Metro North Railroad conductor Bob McDonough posted video of the joyous performance on his Facebook page.
The video shows Bob interrupting singers during a vocal warm-up.
"I'm the conductor, let me conduct!" Bob says to the group before they break into "Carol of the Bells."
He then expertly carries them through the song.
Commenters are praising Bob, calling him the best conductor out there.
