Fairfield University Glee Club presents Pops Concert at Quick Center for the Arts


Hooray for Hollywood! The Fairfield University Glee Club, under the baton of Carole Ann Maxwell, presents its annual Pops Concert, Tuesday, April 30 at 7:30 p.m. in Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. Titled "Let's Go to the Movies," the concert is a lively revue of music made popular by the silver screen.

The Fairfield University Glee Club, founded 50 years ago, is the parent organization of the Sine Nomine Singers, Sweet Harmony, the Men's Ensemble and the Chamber Singers. Collectively, these choral ensembles have presented concerts in prestigious venues throughout the United States and Europe, including New York's Carnegie Hall, Washington, D.C.'s National Cathedral and London's Westminster Cathedral.

Maxwell, the director of choral and liturgical music at Fairfield University since 1980, is one of America's preeminent conductors of collegiate, community and professional choral ensembles. She serves as artistic director and conductor of the Mendelssohn Choir of Connecticut and is chorus master for Yale Opera, as well as the Connecticut Grand Opera and Orchestra.

Limited seating is available for the concert. Tickets are $6 and $8. For more information, call the box office at (203) 254-4010 or toll-free at 1-877-ARTS-396.
