A rep for 20th Century Fox Television reveals to ET that the cast of"Glee" held a private memorial for their late co-star Cory Monteith on Thursday.

The rep tells ET that the show's co-creator Ryan Murphy and star Lea Michele "gathered the cast, crew and producers of 'Glee,' along with colleagues from the network and studio, to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith."
