Each choral group has become more theatric with their performance pieces adding a great dimension to the music chosen. 4-Heart Harmony, SHU L.O.V.E, SHU Concert ChoirUniversity of Bridgeport Chamber Singers, and University Singers, continue to wow the audience. We include all of the annual favorites that the audience have grown to love -- Dr. Joe Utterback (jazz ensemble, costume march), David Harris (inspired with fire, silent film, getting the audience involved), Dr. John Michniewicz (great Toccata in D minor), Victoria Shields (spooky organ), and many more!!!
