Summer is coming! Summer is coming! And what better way to celebrate than with a virtual concert full of songs about sunshine and summer and the hope they bring!
Here Comes the Sun: Three Great Choruses, One Online Show will premiere Sunday, May 23, at 5:00pm EDT on YouTube. It’s a first-of-a kind collaboration between three of the area’s best-loved choruses. The Maplewood Glee Club is a community chorus that’s been delighting local audiences with its harmonies and humor since 1946. The Morris Music Men is Morris County’s premiere barbershop harmony chorus. The award-winning Hickory Tree Chorus shares the joy of barbershop through songs from the Beatles to Broadway
This family-friendly show features a range of uplifting songs including Happy Together, Kokomo, Heat Wave, and Circle of Life, plus music by Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Chance the Rapper, and more! The show will also feature guest appearances by two dynamic teen ensembles from West Morris Mendham High School.

The choruses are also spreading sunshine by raising money for Newark Working Kitchens, a non-profit organization that enables many local Newark restaurants to keep their doors open, their stoves on, and their employees paid during the Covid-19 crisis by cooking and delivering hundreds of meals a day to low-income seniors and families and people without homes. Donations can be made during the show or through the show’s website.
