The popular Summer Festival Chorus of Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts will hold auditions for its 2003 program on Tuesday, June 17, at 7 p.m. in the Quick Center's Kelley Auditorium. The chorus, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, will present a gala concert on Saturday, Aug. 9, at 7:30 p.m.

Experienced choral singers are invited to audition and should be prepared to sing vocal warm-ups and exercises. Auditions are not required for previous participants. Rehearsals will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays from June until the August concert.

The 2003 concert, under the musical direction of Carole Ann Maxwell, will feature the premiere of "The Music Makers," a new composition by jazz pianist/composer Joe Utterback, Ph.D. that was commissioned for the event. Also on the program are favorites from concerts past, including Gershwin's "Summertime," portions of Schubert's "Magnificat," the spiritual "Ain-a That Good News," and "Danny Boy."
