Organized by Staples High School senior, Oliver Smith, A Chorus Jam is a festive evening of song, featuring Staples’ own Orphenians combined with the diverse talents of three of Yale’s famous singing groups—the all-women New Blue, all-men Spizzwinks? and the African-American inflected Shades of Yale. All four groups will entertain with their own special blend of music and showmanship.
The evening is for a very good cause. It will benefit St. John’s Childcare Center, a non-denominational day care provider of much needed services for inner city children, focusing on the childcare needs of single parents. The concert’s specific goal is to raise seed money to establish a food program that will be funded going forward by the Connecticut Child and Adult Care Food Program.
The fun will take place at 7:30 pm, Saturday, October 29, 2016, at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 768 Fairfield Avenue, Bridgeport, CT 06604. Tickets at the door or at achorusjam.eventbrite.com—adults $20, students $15 and children under 12 $10.
