The Fairfield University Glee Club will be in a New York state of mind at its spring pops concert, "The Glee Club Takes Manhattan," on Monday, May 3, at 7:30 p.m. at the University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.

The varied program includes a number of pop and Broadway favorites, including "Sit Down You're Rockin' The Boat" from "Guys and Dolls" and a medley of "West Side Story" songs. In addition, several soloists, the Men's Ensemble and Sweet Harmony will perform.
