Rutgers Glee Club To Perform at At 'Guys Night' Concert Friday
WESTFIELD, NJ — It's not always considered “cool” for men and boys to sing, but that's what's going to happen at Edison Intermediate School this Friday.
The Westfield High School Choral Department will host its first “Guys Night of Singing,” to be held in the Edison Intermediate School auditorium, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19.
Boys in 7th through 12th grades involved in choir, along with fathers (or grandfathers, uncles or other important men in their lives), are encouraged to attend. They will join male teachers from across the school district.
“This event was born out of an interest to make singing fun for our young men in a collaborative and nurturing environment,” said John Brzozowski, director of the Westfield High School Choral Department. “The night is meant to bring guys together in an informal setting where they can have fun and be inspired singing together."
The evening will feature a performance by members of the Rutgers Glee Club, one of the oldest premier male singing groups in the U.S.
Brzozowski, along with Brent Geyer, Director of the high school's men’s chorus, will teach familiar songs and lead a jam session before the event wraps up with a brief informal performance for parents in the EIS auditorium at 8:15 p.m.
Everyone involved will be treated to pizza and refreshments during a break.
“Singing isn’t always perceived as a ‘cool’ thing for guys to do," Brzozowski said. "We’re tremendously excited to get everyone together to show the power of singing.”
Westfield community members interested in participating are asked to RSVP for the event on the Westfield Choir Website or email Brzozowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
