If you’re looking for a fun way to kick off the holiday season, the Maplewood Glee Club may have just the ticket. The group, currently celebrating its 70th year of singing, will perform its annual holiday concert on Saturday, December 3rd, at 8pm at St. Joseph’s Church, 767 Prospect St. in Maplewood.
“Our theme this year is Home for the Holidays,” says Art Heyl, President of the Glee Club, “so we’ll have songs about home, being with family, and of course holiday songs - everything from choral classics to doo-wop to Bruce Springsteen!”
Joining the Glee Club for the first time will be local a cappella sensations, Soulfege, an award-winning, student-led group from Millburn High School who appeared this year on the Lifetime TV show “Pitch Slapped.” Also performing will be frequent guests and audience favorites, The Backlogs, a quartet of MIT alums who bring a mix of humor and close harmony.
“There really is something for everyone,” says director Greg Scime. “We’ve got singers age 15 to 80 from towns all over the area, not just Maplewood, singing songs from the last 200 years. And afterwards there’s food and drink for everyone. I call that a perfect Saturday evening!”
Come join us for what is always a fun night of music!
