The Glee Club numbers over 140 Fairfield University undergraduate and graduate singers. Members will also perform solo and in a variety of collaborations. Also performing are The Bensonians, an all-male a cappella group, Sweet Harmony, an all-female ensemble of chamber singers, and the Chamber Singers under the direction of Dr. Maxwell.
