Summer Festival Chorus to conduct auditions at Quick Center


The eighth annual Summer Festival Chorus, conducted by Carole Ann Maxwell, has scheduled auditions on Thursday, June 14, at 7 p.m. in Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.

Arranged for the experienced choral singer, the 2001 Summer Festival Chorus will bring together singers with a wide range of experience in, and passion for, the arts. This year's program features some "sizzlin'" choral arrangements that are definitely "Too Hot to Handel," as well as that composer's "Ode to St. Cecelia's Day."

At the audition, candidates should come prepared to sing vocal warm-ups and exercises. Previous participants need not audition. Rehearsals take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 to 10 p.m., from June 28 to August 9, in the Quick Center's air-conditioned, acoustically perfect, Kelley Theatre.

The concert is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 11, at 7 p.m., in the Quick Center. For more information call (203) 254-4010 or toll-free at 1-877-ARTS-396.
