LOCAL SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS TO PERFORM AT MAPLEWOOD GLEE CLUB’S SPRING CONCERT
Every spring since 1971, the Maplewood Glee Club awards a scholarship to a high school senior intending to study music in college and beyond. “This year, the level of talent was so phenomenal,” says club scholarship chairman Steve Adamczyk, “we handed out two!”
The winners, Catherine Moore, a jazz and classical pianist from Westfield High School, and Hunter Kovacs, a musical theater tenor from Maplewood’s Columbia High School, will both be featured in the Glee Club’s annual spring concert on Sunday, April 29th at 4pm at St Joseph Church, 767 Prospect Street in Maplewood.
The family-friendly concert titled “It’s About Time” is a collection of songs about, yes, time. Says club member Ian Foster, “Without giving it all away, we have classic rock songs, Broadway ballads, a tune from a Hollywood blockbuster, a pop song recorded at Abbey Road Studios, a famous song from a beloved country singer, and the Time Warp.”
Columbia High School’s honors choir, the Excelsior Singers, will also perform, as will audience favorites The Doo-Wop Preservation Society. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and students, and kids under 10 are free.
The Maplewood Glee Club was founded in 1946 and comprises singers from all over the area, including Westfield, Summit, Chatham, Livingston, the Oranges, and Montclair.
