FLINT TWP. — The world-renown University of Michigan – Ann Arbor Men’s Glee Club has invited the Carman- Ainsworth Chorale Men’s Choir to sing with them at their season opening Fall Concert on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. at Hill Auditorium on the Ann Arbor campus, according to Faith Yassick, C-A Choir director, in a press release.
The Men’s Glee Club from Michigan includes more than 100 members and 150 years of tradition. They are the second oldest collegiate choir in the U.S. and have toured countless countries and made many recordings.
Each year they invite a high school Men’s group to sing with them. Saturday’s concert is titled “Brothers in Song” and it is an outreach project for them.
Members of the U- M choir and their director have come to C-A High School to rehearse with students in preparation for this once-in-a-lifetime concert experience, Yassick said. Each U -M member “adopted” one C-A student, sat next to him in rehearsal and spent time getting to know him.
The Glee Club has made arrangements for all the members of the Chorale to attend the concert and will be providing charter bus transportation as well as dinner for the students.
The public is invited to attend the concert. Tickets are available online at http:// tickets.music.umich.edu/single/EventDetail. aspx?p=2315
In another upcoming accomplishment, C-A choirs also have been invited to perform with Powers High School Choir at Disney and Universal in Florida, April 23-28, according to a posted schedule. — Rhonda Sanders
