The Mad Hatter Chorus announced that its 52nd annual show, “A Grand Night for Singing,” will take place Saturday, April 1, at Western Connecticut State University’s Visual and Performing Arts Center, 43 Lake Avenue Extension, Danbury. The evening will spotlight Broadway tunes by Richard Rodgers (1902-1979), one of America’s most beloved composers.
The program is unusually full this year. Special guests include Timepiece, a champion New England quartet formed in 2013 at Boston University. Also performing are three local quartets: Blue Moon, Traveling Men and the Harmony Brigade Four. In addition, a special chorus, comprising members from both the Mad Hatters and the Bridgeport Coastal Chordsmen, will preview its entries for the May 6 Yankee Division contest of the 22,000-member international Barbershop Harmony Society in Lake George, NY. The evening’s grand finale is appropriately chosen: “So Many Voices.”
